    Norman Borlaug

    Norman Borlaug has died at 95. You probably don't know who that is.
    You should.

    This is extremely saddening, even moreso since so few people seem to understand exactly what the world has lost with his death. He was an absolutely amazing humanitarian, a brilliant scientist, and a perfect example of how one person can change the world for the better. I'm so sad to see him go.

    I remember reading up on Norman and his work some years ago. This sucks. Still, 95 years is a hell of a run.

    I think I saw him on Pen&Teller's bullshit show.
    It should be a crime that this person wasn't more well known.

    As the BBC just put it, "a man probably responsible for saving more lives than anyone in human history."
