Vaclav Havel has died

Vaclav Havel, the former president of Czechoslovakia, playwright, and pro-democracy activist, passed away this morning. "I would be glad if it was felt that I have done something generally useful," he said. "I don't care much about personal fame or popularity. I would be satisfied with the feeling that I had a chance to help with something in general, something good. That history gave me that chance."
