I should win the Nobel Peace Prize

Here's how to nominate ME for a Nobel Peace prize.


First of all, let me say that I had no problem with Stanley "Tookie" Williams personally.  He was probably a really great guy right up until he was executed by the state of California.  Who was Stanley "Tookie" Williams, you ask?  Well, he was a co-founder of the famous Los Angeles street gang the Crips, which he started with a high school friend.  Now, I don't know about you, but my high school friends and I created nothing but disgusting smells and bad guitar and synthesizer music.  He had been convicted of 4 murders -he maintained his innocence- and was on death row in San Quentin prison from 1981 until December 2005.  While there, he renounced his violent past, wrote inspirational children's books and was nominated for the Nobel Peace prize and the Nobel in literature.


Although I was unable to confirm this with the good Nobel folks over in Norway, since they keep nomination information secret for 50 years, Tookie's supporters claim that it's true.

That got me to thinking.  Why can't I win the Nobel Prize?  I guess I probably can.  I've decided to focus my efforts on only one Nobel Prize and since I figure the literature one is really competitive, I've chosen the Peace Prize.  Tookie wrote inspirational children's books.  I write inspirational children's books.  Tookie had a violent past.  I have a peaceful past.  I qualify.  It's even possible that I'm ahead of the game, depending on who the other nominees are.  So, here's a list of who you should contact.
