Rest In Peace, Vaclav Havel

Yesterday, a great man passed away at the age of 75.  Vaclav Havel went from political prisoner to President and helped the Czech Republic become a stable modern democracy.  He will be forever linked with the Velvet Revolution, one of several such transformations that swept the former Soviet bloc in 1989.

For those of us old enough to remember, here is Jesus Jones' musical diary of that time.

Yup, like, too. Not enough can be said about him. The obit in the Economist was the best. Glad you put this up.
