Still Delivering Resonant Phrases at 92

'We have to live more simply so that others can simply live.'
--Grace, a self-described 92-year-old "lifelong activist," calling in to the BBC's World Have Your Say program yesterday, nominating the agricultural scientist and Nobel laureate Norman Borlaugh for the title of Greatest Living American. Among those also drawing nominations were Jimmy Carter (who one caller absurdly labeled humble), Ralph Nader and (egad) Arnold Schwarzenegger. Who's my nominee, you ask? I think you couldn't go wrong with Robert Coles. How about yours?
