Frances Kelsey, a Hero During the Thalidomide Scourge, Dies at 101

I suppose we could find it worrisome that when a bureaucrat gets it right, people are so astonished that they award a medal to the bureaucrat. But I admire courage, and I realize it takes courage to stand up to a product when both government and business are for it, and for that reason, I believe she deserves to be remembered as a hero.
