Nelson Mandela ...
Has died. At least that's what I'm getting over the shortwave radio. Shy

Obviously this has been a long time coming. Will this have any real impact on continuing progress in South Africa or will things stay the course?

Looks like the news isn't quite out yet - this is all I could find, so far, and it's not even about his death, just family gathering.

Died at home at age 95, the current President of South Africa is quoted as saying that they have lost their greatest Son.

RE: Nelson Mandela ...
There is a line from an old Irish rebel song that seems appropriate .....

something like ....

"we'll maybe have great men ,but we'll never have better"

Man will never be free until the last king is strangled with the entrails of the last priest.


"Every normal man must be tempted, at times, to spit upon his hands, hoist the black flag, and begin slitting throats."

RE: Nelson Mandela ...
He had a shitty end, for a great man. Why've we still got all the assholes and the one good guy SA's ever produced is either dying or dead ?

There is a lot of backward progress in SA and Mandela ceased to be relevant a while ago, unfortunately. So things will stay on course for the shitter, at least if the current crop of power hungry degenerates stays in power.

Confirmed.

An article about his death appeared in a popular German newspaper today.

As it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
And I will show you something different from either
Your shadow at morning striding behind you
Or your shadow at evening rising to meet you;
I will show you fear in a handful of dust.

You will be pleased to read I&I's respectful thread on Mr. Mandela over at AF.org.Dodgy

I'm sure glad I ain't on that site having to deal with that thread. Though the username Captain Colostomy is funny. xD
