Leonard Cohen for the Nobel Prize?

Paul Kennedy, a radio DJ with the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, is campaigning for singer/poet/novelist Leonard Cohen to be the recipient of this year's Nobel Prize for Literature. Unsurprisingly, the Brits are all over this as well - both the BBC and the Guardian wrote up articles on it this week, and not just a little blatantly reiterarted what a good idea they think it is. Should be interesting to see what comes of it... (Thanks as always to Bookslut for pointing this out.)
