Congratulations, Elinor Ostrom!

I just read that Elinor Ostrom was awarded the nobel prize in economics. And I started crying. In desperation. Don't ask me why, well do ask me why, because I would want to know. I adored her. I still do. She is the figurehead of good science in service of humanity and the search for truth, while at the same time she is friendly and cordial like any us-american grandmother, giving out praise and supportive critique like chocolate cookies.

I adore her.

Her winning the nobel prize shakes the floor on which my disappointment with academia, science, and politics rests.
