eulogy for this great man and his death is a sad fact of history. Havel will be remembered kindly. The eulogy touches on what his version of The Beggar's Opera illustrated: living a lie is living a lie. He lived the truth and we loved him for it.

You've probably already heard the news. Serbia and Kosovo struck a deal on the border after a few weeks of Les Misérables-esque car barricades AND after Germany frowned upon Serbia's EU ascendancy publicly. Am I the only one who's excited? Who's saying, "WHOA" and refuses to listen to any conversation in the near vicinity because I'm so psyched for some Balkan cooperation? Maybe. This does not damper my enthusiasm.
Zdeněk Miler died this week. He was the animator of the famous "Krtek" animation that the whole world fell in love with. I fell in love with it in one viewing. So accessible, cute, and universally loved. I am very sad he is gone and that his classic, classy style is no longer to be created. Rest in peace, Zdeněk.
