It is way past time to correct this wrong. Today's parents have been freed from fear of this monster attacking their children because Dr. Salk was able to get support for what was then a very unpopular approach. Consider for a moment, however, polio as today's, and not yesterday's, monster. Would today's glorification of Pandering Cowardice (aka, Political Correctness) support or prevent Dr. Salk receiving the support today that he actually-in-fact received yesterday?
In refusing to admit that Dr. Salk clearly earned a Nobel Prize by removing Polio's Monster from the world's stage, the Nobel Committee has, in effect, created its own version of a Dred Scott Decision. That fact that Polio's Monster still damages lives in some parts of the world is not Dr. Salk's fault.
