Beeb

Without that man, most of us probably wouldn't be here, and the rest would be living in a very different world indeed.

We all owe him a gigantic debt. There should be statues of him across the world.

Wow, we owe him a lot. There are a lot of people on both sides that would have jumped at the opportunity. Thankfully he wasn't one.
