RIP Vaclav Havel
Surprised it hasn't been mentioned already, but today is the funeral of Václav Havel, this country's first post-Communist President, and a man of unusual integrity and honesty for a politician.

quote:
Truth and love must prevail over lies and hate.

- Václav Havel, 1936-2011

Re: Albert Uderzo, 92
But you have to read it in french to get the puns.

The English translators just wrote new puns. There's at least a pun per page in Asterix so rewriting them is the translator's main job.

The original English translators both unfortunately also passed away in the last decade.
