Passage of a poet-president

Vaclav Havel: "The tragedy of modern man is not that he knows less and less about the meaning of his own life, but that it bothers him less and less." The former Czech Republic president, a dissident playwright who inspired the non-violent "Velvet Revolution" that brought down communism in Czechoslovakia, died today at age 75.
