Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, Dead

See Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn Is Dead at 89," NY Times (Aug. 6, 2008).

This sad news has something to do with evidence. Before Solzhenitsyn's appearance many people in the West -- I am old enough to remember this -- were dismissive of claims that Stalinism led to the deaths of millions of people. But the evidence of death on such a massive scale was publicly available long before Solzhenitsyn burst on the international scene.
