Nobody deserves a Newbery!

I'm still hugely pleased that Neil Gaiman has won the Newbery Medal for The Graveyard Book, which I would confidently call the best thing he's written since American Gods. (For those of you who don't get the title of this post, 'Nobody' is the name of the Mowgli-esque protagonist, so... Oh, never mind.)

I'm also slightly relieved that the good Mr. Gaiman didn't burst out into profanity to the Newbery committee, the way he did when he won the Hugo. Somehow I doubt that "F**k, I won a Newbery!" would have gone over very well.
