I found a new hero

So much of history is about people who lead wars and conquored other countries, or politicians who grew the size of government by adding yet another program.  A few of them are worthy of respect, for example Patrick Henry, George Washington and John Adams.

I've found a new hero:  Norman Borlaug -  The Father of the Green Revolution.

It is sad that so much of what he did was attacked.  He saved millions of people from death by starvation.
