When I heard about Sheehan’s silliness, I was reminded of the Grove Street Cemetery in New Haven, resting place of Noah Webster among others. John Gamble Kirkwood (d. 1959) was a chemist on the Yale faculty. His tomb stone is 6 feet high and more than two feet wide, and includes a 20 line listing of awards and achievements. Next to him is buried Lars Onsanger (d. 1976), another Yale chemist. His tombstone is about as large, but just has inscribed, “Nobel Laureate*”. Down below is another asterisk, followed by only “etc.” I am glad the Grameen Bank won; they have done real work rather than just posturing. And, unlike Jimmy Carter, Muhammad Yunus has empowered democrats rather than dictators.
