Alexander Solzhenitsyn, 1918-2008

Solzhenitsyn has died. Here is a pretty good obituary. If I find a better one, I'll update the post. Please note that links of that sort are unlikely to be permanent.

Here is his speech at Harvard. It is excellent even 30 years later, and I commend it to you. I've added a quotation from it to the masthead.

If you haven't read The Gulag Archipelago already, do it now.

This is a sad day.
