Vaclav Havel and the Politics of Common Decency

Predictably (and more or less understandably), North Korea is all over the news outlets because of the concern of what's going to happen in the aftermath of Kim Jong Il's demise.  Still, it has overshadowed the passing of Havel, a man who did far more good in life.  Two more different leaders could scarcely be imagined.  So I give you a nice write-up of Havel's life and career.  Hail and farewell, sir.  Keep on rockin' in the free world!
