Vaclav Havel died today. He led one of the most impressive and admirable lives of the 20th century. Kim Jong-Il also died today. Trey Parker and Matt Stone's Team America: World Police made fun of him and his meglomania so effectively that people who saw the movie basically couldn't look at him and keep a straight face ever again. Because of it, more Americans will probably remember Kim Jong-Il than Vaclav Havel, but I guess that's how it goes.
