    Norman Borlaug dead at 95

    Nobel laureate Norman Borlaug dies at 95 -

    Iowa just lost one of its greatest citizens.

    Edit: The register has a nice write up too.

    When it was announced in 1970 that Borlaug had won the Nobel Peace Prize, he was working in experimental fields 50 miles from Mexico City.

    At first, Borlaug thought the report that he had won the Nobel was a joke, and he had to be persuaded to return to the city for a news conference. When he arrived, he was wearing his work clothes, with dust on his shoes and dirt on his hands.
