life in a jar

Irena Sendler has died aged 98. No, nor me. But she did have an obituary in the New York Times. I offer you the opportunity to read about her here, for which hat-tip Harry's Place. They say rightly that the prize does not always go to the most deserving: she was up for the Nobel Peace Prize for saving 2500 children from the Warsaw ghetto, but it went to Al Gore for a slide show about global warming for Guardian readers to talk about at their dinner parties. Congratulations. That it should come to this.
