Tyrant dies in his bed shock

Rope and bullet saved for successor?

Mick Hartley has more: The Dear Departed Leader and You can hear the sound of wailing outside. Also: Death on a train? (I’m sticking with my headline for now.)

Below, Christopher Hitchens on North Korea and Orwell, Czechoslovakia and Kafka.



Added, Hitchens writing for Slate, February 2010: A Nation of Racist Dwarfs, Kim Jong-il's regime is even weirder and more despicable than you thought.
