R.I.P., Benazir Bhutto
'Remember that all through history the way of truth and love has always won. There have been tyrants and murderers and for a time they seem invincible but, in the end, they always fall. Think of it--always.'
--Mahatma Gandhi. Earlier this year, we brought you this quote from Ms. Bhutto, about the human need to venture into danger. A chillingly prophetic sentiment, given her murder yesterday. Washington Post columnist David Ignatius offers up this vivid remembrance of her. Meanwhile, The Economist does its usual job of smartly analyzing things, while the former South Asian bureau chief for the New York Times declares in this piece in The Nation that "an age of hope is over." Time was the first major outlet (at least the first I noticed) to explore the important issue of who's behind her murder. Finally, the king of Akron's blogging community, the formidable Scott Piepho (a.k.a. Pho), did a nice roundup yesterday.
