Nobel countdown

That time of year approaches: perhaps in less than a month they'll be announcing the Nobel Prize in Literature 2017. And, hey, that should be of some interest, right ? After all, things can't go worse than they did last year, from the ridiculous choice they made to everything that happened (or, mostly, didn't) afterwards. Still, I'm finding it hard to work up much enthusiasm -- they blew up the prize last year, and I can't really figure out how to take it in any way seriously again.
