Hope he gets it but I wonder, why has it taken until 2013 to give this guy a prize?

The Nobel Peace Prize committee has priorities. They must first make sure they have honored enough people who kill Jews (e.g., Arafat) or had at that time done nothing of note (e.g., Obama) before they start to even think of honoring someone who has saved the lives of Jews. Indeed, the fact that the people he saved were Jews will probably be enough to disqualify him. Let's face it, Sendler wasn't good enough for the Nobel committee, although do-nothing Obama was.

He'd certainly get a few Oscars if someone had the forethought to make a documentary on this.

Oh who am I kidding, they've moved on to the melodrama of intolerance of gays now.

Given the track record of the Nobel Committee, I'm betting heavily on it going to Bashar al-Assad or  Mohamed Morsi.

Unless they give another one to Obama for his work on drones and building Stasi 2.0.
