I'm currently taking a chemistry course at the U of M, and I have the utmost respect for what these gifted scientists do for the world. I wish more and more of our students can venture into the science and math fields in order to discover how phenomenal world is and how much more our own minds can perceive! Congratulations!

muslimteacher: yes, get American students away from their "smartphones" and Xboxes, or have a cultural environment that encourages strong academic study, instead of spending money, then perhaps we can have more American scientists and a stronger educated workforce.

Its seen rarely in history where these barbarians, these noble laureate, from the outer reaches of civilization make appropriate decisions, but it does happen as we can see from this article. Hopefully their minds weren't too swept away by the magnanimousness of contact with Minnesota culture and the world will survive!!

Agre (Chemistry, 2003) was not only Augsburg but also Minneapolis Roosevelt High School.

jmusielewicz: I remember in 1986 when a George Mason University professor won the Nobel for Economics, and you may have thought, from the employees where I was working in McLean, Virginia, that he had won the presidential election. People toot their horns all over the place.

Did I miss it or was it reported also that he earned his MD at Yale, did an internal medicine residency at Washington University (St. Louis), and was a research fellow at Duke before going to Stanford. A real hotshot!!! Congragulations.
