It's now been just over 100 years since the Rotary Club was formed in Chicago, and, next month, around 40,000 folks will flock to town to celebrate that fact. They'll especially be cheering the success of their anti-polio initiative, which has contributed to a 99% reduction in annual cases world-wide. Today's NY Times runs an op-ed "Appreciation".
