Norman Borlaug, father of the Green Revolution and Nobel Peace Prize winner, has received the Congressional Gold Medal. If you don't know who Dr. Borlaug is, please read of his many accomplishments at his Wikipedia entry. Gregg Easterbrook comments over at Huffington's Toast.
AOL blogger Jeff Hoard has two clips, one a local newscast honoring this accomplishment, the other of Dr. Borlaug speaking and endorsing GMO food. Some people would rather see people starve than allow GMO food. Dr. Borlaug is not one of them, and neither am I.
