Deathly Times

North Korean Leader Kim Jong Il dead. I will shed no tears.

Unlike yesterday, when one of the world's great statesmen died, Vaclav Havel, the first leader of the post-Communist Czechoslovakia and after the country's peaceful separation, the first leader of the Czech Republic. A great leader who led his country trough the turbulent Post-Communist years of the 1990's so today it is one of Europe's most wondrous places.

Two different leaders, two countries that have gone in such different directions. Both products of the Cold War, how funny the twist of fate can be...
