Sad news, Norman Borlaug was a great human being.
The first time I heard is name was in 2003 during the "Penn & Teller: Bullsh*t!" program (about GM food).

Norman was one of kind. “His total devotion to ending famine and hunger revolutionized food security " - just read this from Josette Sheeran, the executive director of the UN World Food Programme. Worth a read: http://bit.ly/15foeb
