Solzhenitsyn has died....
It is a sad day. If you have not yet read the Gulag Archipelago or A Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovitch you should stop what you are doing right now and go buy them.
"For a country to have a great writer is like having a second government. That is why no regime has ever loved great writers, only minor ones."
One obituary is here.
