On the 1400 (CST) BBC news I heard that Al Haig was dead.
He was a fucking monster.
"Come on. Jesus! God! You know, you'd better get out and read Machiavelli or somebody else because I think you're living in a dream world!"
I love that whole blasphemer-wrapped-up-as-a-realist frame.
So as to not be misunderstood, peace to his survivors and blessings on his command.
I think he should have died in prison.
