    The man died, it was a eulogy and tribute on this site.

    Usually in a eulogy you don't denigrate and point out people's flaws, but celebrate their contributions.

    This diary and your comment, viewed in that light, are in bad taste.

      And here I thought he died in 1976. Yes, 25 years is enough time to grant anyone. I immersed myself in the study of Stalin and his millions of victims. I will not betray myself by staying silent.

      If the Democrats won't fight for me, why should I fight for them?

        diary.

        I had not ever even heard his name before I read that informative diary.

        OK, then. Ignore that last comment and get back to your arguing about Stalin.
