Black American Innovator

For my daughter's Black History Month report: Help me find the name of this remarkable black american surgical/medical innovator. Some time back, I saw a great documentary about a black gentleman who worked at a major teaching hospital - Yale, Hopkins, Mayo... something like that. He came from humble beginnings (I think), and though not a doctor, became a great surgical/medical innovator and instructor. I believe this was in the 30's-50s. My memory is hazy (must be age), but it was an inspiring story. He overcame some adversity, and plenty of prejudice to become a sort of honorary professor.

McCain's Character vs Obama's?

Who do you think has better ethics? Who has the better character? Before you answer consider the following: McCain was far deeper in bed with Charles Keating than Obama was with Tony Resko. Keating gave far more to McCain's campaign than Resko gave to Obama's. In fact, Keating was one of McCains' top fundraisers. Keating paid for many McCain vacations and flights to his resort homes, which McCain never disclosed (by law he must as a congressman) until years later during the Keating 5 fiasco. Cindy McCain and her dad invested $400,000 in a Keating strip mall. But here's the big difference, Obama dropped Resko like a wet cigar when Resko's started stinking. McCain on the otherhand, stepped in and tried to prevent a Senate hearing into Keating's fowl deeds. Keatings stench was all over McCain during those hearings. How McCain stayed out of jail is amazing. OK, I know I know the Keating stuff was 20 years ago. Fair enough, but has McCain changed? Well now, McCain has a whole army of Ke
