That's one more for Princeton

One more reason to be proud, our very own Paul Krugman has just been given the Nobel Prize in Economics ("The Sveriges Riksbank Prize in Economic Sciences in Memory of Alfred Nobel 2008"). The Prince reported it here. The New York Times, for which Krugman is a columnist, moved the story to the top of their homepage, so that at the moment Professor Krugman's face is in the middle of the page. (His column also ran today). The Nobel Peace Prize press release can be found here.

Since the internet is ever fluid, here's a screenshot of the NYTimes homepage at around 10:25 this morning.
