Simon Wiesenthal Dies

From the Chicago Trib,Simon Wiesenthal, 'Conscience' of Holocaust, Dies. Wiesenthal not only survived Hitler & Stalin, but brought to justice Eichmann and 1,100 other killers from the Holocaust. He was a living reminder of the world's responsibility for its brothers, and our repeated, massive failures to take that responsibility seriously. He reminded us that evil is a living, breathing thing, and requires action in order to stop its spread.

Who will carry the flag, now that he is gone?



postscript: This news didn't seem to make the front page of the Sun-Times. I wonder why?
