Nobel Peace Prize 2009 - Week's End

SUNDAY UPDATE: Distress at the incivility towards President Obama. If you disapprove of the Nobel Peace Prize award why not show how classy you are by offering a general courteous "Congratulations, Mr. President."? And then pipe down & pester those in your immediate circle--but not on the bus, the Metro, the nail salon (!), the market, the newsstand...

The Nobel Peace Prize 2009 goes to President Barack Obama "for his extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between peoples".... The official Nobel Foundation link.
We're taken aback here at GG Central (as they are at the White House, no doubt), though very happy. Here are some photographs from the Official White House Flickr photostream.

A good weekend & ciao-meow to all
