nelson mandela

Everything important that can be said about the life and work of Nelson Mandela is already being said by people who are much wiser and more knowledgeable than I am. He was a great man, a significant figure in the history of his people, his continent and the world, and a link in a chain of leaders who have increased the amount of justice and freedom in human lives in relatively peaceful ways.

In keeping with the philosophy of this blog, which is dedicated to saying small things about big things, I would also like to add that Mr. Mandela was also one of the most photogenic people ever.  The cameras of the world just loved the guy.
