Gore's Nobel Prize?

It doesn't make sense to me that Al Gore's cancellation of a Thursday appointment means he's been tipped off about winning the Nobel Prize. Prize recipients do not need to be in Sweden when they receive word of their winning -- indeed, Americans are usually rousted out of bed for a phone call. Secondly, I have never heard of a Nobel Prize being tipped off (it may happen, but I've never heard of it), and I think the prize officials are about as secretive as they come....

We'll see soon.
