Ave atque Vale, Vaclav Havel

Havel, Czech dissident playwright and the first president of the Czech Republic after the Velvet Revolution, has died at the age of 75.  Reason magazine has a number of features on Havel.  Oh, and note that Noam Chomsky considers Havel "morally repugnant" -- which means Havel really is all that and a bag of chips.  Hail and farewell, sir, and thank you for your efforts to undo Communism in eastern Europe.
