Man, Google's "news alert" service sucks. I wanted to know immediately when they announced the Nobel Peace Prize, so I signed up. I ended up learning the winner from the NYTimes web site, and I still haven't received anything from Google.

Iranian Lawyer Wins Nobel Peace Prize: "Nobel watchers say that the five-member committee, which comprises three women, probably chose Ebadi as a way of promoting change, rather than rewarding the ailing pope or to Havel for a lifetime of peace work."

Well. Fair enough. At least it wasn't the damned Poop.

UPDATE: 11:33 a.m. It's been 26 minutes since the first story was posted, and I still haven't received anyhing. 27 minutes...
