Drum Roll, Please

The Nobel Prize in Literature for 2006 has been awarded to a Turkish writer, Orhan Pamuk, "who in the quest for the melancholic soul of his native city has discovered new symbols for the clash and interlacing of cultures." You can see video of the announcement at the Nobel site.

Time Magazine named Orhan Pamuk one of the "Time 100: People Who Sahpe Our World" in May and their article about him remains on-line.

Thanks for the YouTube link! It was just the thing to cure the kind of days I've been having lately.
