HONORING NORMAN BORLAUG: As regular InstaPundit readers know, I’m all for that. I love this:
Norman Borlaug “has saved more lives than any other person who has ever lived.” This is a profound distinction. Like the society that sustains it, American academia takes achievements like this for granted. One must wonder how many professors, outside schools such as Tuskegee and departments dedicated to agriculture, have any idea that an American university professor holds the all-time record for lives saved.
I’m guessing that not many people do.
