It’s that time of year again when we start getting announcements from Stockholm. iDnes, running an AFP story, says Václav Havel is a front runner for the Nobel Peace Prize, along with Brazilian President “Lula” da Silva and Pope John Paul II.

Havel is still my hero, and I hope he wins it. I’ll be following the news from Oslo with great interest.

Update Sat 04 Oct 1155: Thanks to reader Kjell from Norway for pointing out that the prize is awarded in Oslo.
