Good News For A Change

Muhammad Yunus and Grameen Bank awarded the Nobel Peace Prize.

This makes me SO INCREDIBLY HAPPY. I heard Yunus quoted on NPR this morning saying how important it is to offer loans to women in particular and how there can't be true democracy until women are offered the same opportunities as men. AND he's giving away his prize money to fund grassroots causes. I fucking LOVE THIS MAN.
