Irena Sendler was buried last May in Warsaw, Poland. She had been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize in 2007, but Al Gore's video on global warming was apparently a bigger contribution to this world than Irena's. I think that says all there needs to be said about the selection process. Pardon my French, but what a fucking joke.
Ms. Sendler is credited with saving about 2500 Jewish infants and children from the Nazis. She did this smuggling them out of Warsaw one at a time or in very small groups. After being caught she was severely beaten and had her legs and arms broken.
Gore did a Powerpoint presentation of questionable "facts".
What a joke.
