Subject: another braniac for Obama cabinet
Obama just appointed a Nobel laureate to his cabinet. No, not Al Gore,
just some guy who used to slow atoms with lasers. Like none of us had
done that.

I'm not sure how all this will work out a few years down the road, but
this has got to be the brainiest administration in American history.

Americans won't like it. Brains scare them--witness this newsgroup.

If this prediction is as solid as the one you made eight years ago we
should be doing pretty well. I'll settle for the end of hunger, world
peace, a quadrupled net worth and Salma Hayek serving me the perfect
mojito on the beach in St. John.

I'm pretty sure they all have "real world experience".

Yeah, I was being too subtle for some. After finishing his Nobel
stuff, Steven Chus has had a few years running one of the biggest
scientific enterprises around.

It's not like you actually have to do something to get a Nobel, they award
them according to who your daddy is.

there's a strong connection between nobel prizes and real world
achievements:

somebody give gary a ribbon so he doesn't feel like such a failure.

There are Nobels and then there are Nobels. The Peace and Literature
prizes are totally subjective and follow the latest political wind. The
Economics one is less egregious but similar.

On the hand, some Nobles do get given for real-life achievements like
inventing the CT scan, the MRI scan, the integrated circuit,the electron
microscope, or merely confirming the origin of the universe.

Totally OT: Early in my career 2 old guys on my campus with whom I
occasionally worked with were nominated for the Nobel in the same year.
(One was in serious contention, the other not so much.) At the time I
thought that the Nobel must not be such a big deal. Of course, since
then, I haven't worked with another nominee.

But, I look forward to George W. Bush getting his Nobel Prize for
Literature when his memoirs come out.
