From the "Couldn't Happen To A Nicer Guy" department.

Slobodan Milosevic, former contender for the Welterweight Genocidal Butt-Head Dictator Championship in the Southeastern Europe division, kicked off in his cell the other day. Karma had apparently grown tired of the tree-sloth pace of the U.N. War Crimes Tribunal, and took matters into its own hands.

Some less-than-perceptive pundits have boneheadedly lamented his premature exit as "a huge setback for justice", since he didn't stick around long enough to say he was sorry for being such a meanie.

I'm going to go out on a limb and guess that survivors of his murderous activities will forego the apologies and take the win on points...

Slobo's death is lamentable and indeed a huge setback for justice. All those attorneys and a few jailers have to find other ways to generate revenue. Maybe the lawyers can bill some hours investigating to see if he was poisoned in captivity.

Well, he never would have faced execution, not in enlightened Europe. The maximum he would have gotten was life in prison, with the possibility of release as part of some spineless deal with other, just as vile scum.

Which is what he ended up with anyway, without the possibility of a deal. My greatest regret is that the Euro-weenies will not drag his corpse through the streets on hooks.

Well, he died alone and in a cell, so I'm kind of ok with that. The point is that he was deposed, and that's the major concern, in my book.
