Vaclav Havel, RIP

I am late on this, but it is no less heartfelt for that. The fall of communism in Eastern Europe will likely be the great world-historical event of my lifetime, and Havel was one of the most inspiring figures of that event.

The Economist provides a very nice history, and Reason's Matt Welch reports from his funeral in Prague.
