From Aporrea.org, some exciting news out of Bolivia:
The president of Bolivia, Evo Morales, was nominated today for the Nobel Peace Prize by representatives of local social movements and other nations. Morales arrived in Managua this morning to attend the swearing-in of Nicaraguan president-elect Daniel Ortega.
It couldn’t happen to a nicer fella, unless maybe you count what happened with Chavecito last year.
Congratulations, Evo, you deserve it!
(And come Friday, you also deserve to be festively blogged!)
