Be careful what you wish for.

China has been in a stew for years about its lack of Nobel Prizes.  Like the Olympics, having Nobel Prizes awarded to your citizens means you've "arrived" as a modern nation.

So they got one, a Peace Prize, too!   Problem is, it went to a jailed pro-democracy dissident, which is drawing world attention precisely where they don't want it.

Ooops.  Enjoy your turn in the spotlight, guys.
