Imagine that upon your death the eulogists could observe that because of your work at least one million people are alive who otherwise would have died.

In the modern world this might be the legacy of a medical researcher. For most of human history it would require one to have been a great political, military or humanitarian leader. Just so.

Rest in Peace, Henry Hyde.
