RIP Ryszard Kapuscinski

Polish television is reporting that Ryszard Kapuscinski has died, at the age of 74.

I'm not one for heroes, but Kapuscinski is the closest thing I have to one. It's really sad to contemplate that he's never going to write another thing.

Definitely lived a full life, though.

Its David Pacha writing from Warsaw, Poland... I feel sad, like you do. I see he is not only a heroe in Poland, but worldwide, too. Despite your topic, Im sure he will get to heaven. He deserves it;)

Thank you David -- and yes -- I'm sure there's a spot in heaven for him. Quite a man.

I've changed the title - I don't want anyone to get the wrong idea :)
