Back in 2005/06, Jamie Montana wrote an Indicator article about Pinter's antiwar doggerel in which he wondered why Pinter had won the Nobel then (answer: politics!). I wrote a letter to the editor arguing that he'd won the prize then because he'd likely be dead in a couple of years. Looks like I was right.
Update. Actually, never mind. He was pretty dead when he got the prize. My death-foreseeing skills remain unproven.
