As a Mount Everest NUT since I was a teenager, Tenzing Norgay has been one of my abiding heroes. I think he was quite the man — exemplary.

After considerable pondering and looking at the facts I also believe that he probably reached the peak ahead of Edmund Hillary — though that is now essentially a moot point.

I will have to remember to commemorate his birthday on May 29. So, we think he was born 103 years ago.
