Borlaug Again

Here is my original Norman Borlaug at 90 post, updated to fix a dead link. It also provides another instance of Carter not being all bad, though it seems like getting Africa on its feet has tended to be more of a Republican/conservative thing, much as ending slavery, civil rights, desegregation, and equal treatment were/are. Obviously he is three years deceased, now, as Deb mentioned, but always worth celebrating.

I suppose Carter’s support could be explained by his religiosity, having been the last Democrat of the evangelicals and what we now call “the religious right,” plaguing the Republicans.
