He's always seemed to me like a Norman BorlaugJ type. One of those people who did lots of good but is basically unknown. Yeah, he didn't do as much good as Borlaug, so I get the comparison is off, but cutting on fees for investing helped a whole lot of people. Lots of us will have more comfortable retirements because of him. Cool guy.
