MacFarlane landed in the title because he donated the money that allowed the library to purchase the papers

Where the hell is Sagan’s Nobel? Yes, yes, he didn’t stop any wars or whatever, but he deserves (IMO) to be lionized as much as humanly possible.

Nobel Prizes are not awarded posthumously.

That was more of a rhetorical question on my part, but thanks.

If you can’t be pedantic on the internet, what’s the point? :slight_smile:
