Totally apart from the merits of the arguments proffered by the two sides of the issue my concern is with a basic conceptual error in this article. The Award was for courage in the face of danger, as the author of the article conceded. But then the author made a patently false statement: "courage implies nobility." No, courage does NOT imply nobility or anything else. Courage is an independent attribute that is unrelated to the cause in which it is displayed. Indeed history is replete with examples where courage was exhibited in the course of pursuing the most ignoble of causes.
