In Response to: Nothing succeeds like failure [6]

I applaud and admire the hard work, dedication, and passion exhibited by the scientists profiled in your story about how success is often born of past failures. I also enjoyed the splendid irony that the symbol of success chosen for your cover illustration, the Nobel Prize, recently was awarded in the peace category to our president, not for what he has accomplished, but simply based on his popularity. Iā€™m sure that the heroes of your story hold themselves and their successes to a much higher standard ā€” their own.
