  • The Gold Medal for Life – His and Countless Others

    Posted by Ginny on December 4th, 2006 (All posts by )

    Jurisdynamics argues that if anyone deserves the Congressional Gold Medal, our nation’s highest civilian honor, Norman Borlaug does. Ponder for a moment one of the reasons:

    Dr. Borlaug has saved more lives than any other person who has ever lived, and likely has saved more lives in the Islamic world than any other human being in history.

    His importance will, I suspect, be better understood as history contrasts our time with others. (Instapundit noted this.)
    Update: Nominations for the anti-Borlaug.

    Update: It passed. And the figure here for lives saved is a billion. Sometimes even the House is able to share bipartisan gratitude and respect.
