Even though he has been out of office for a decade, I'd bet most of us would still feel he is still UN Secretary General.

RIP

The same man who stood by while 500 000 Tutsis were systematically murdered in a genocide.

Not to mention the corruption that took place under his watch at the UN, oil for food in Iraq and his son anyone?

What is it about famous people dying so early? Besides Sean Connery has anyone famous alive made it past the age of 80? Even my old relatives who dont have access to the same level of healthcare or wealth as these celebrities lived into their 90s.

RIP. Thoughts go out to his family. I feel like criticism can be its own thread, as we should be able to separate recognition of someone's death and our culture's respect around that, and criticism of the person's actions while alive.

...the average life expectancy is 78 years old in the USA. 80 is not "early". Dude was old.
