Nazi Scumbag Finally DiesYou might want to check out the reported cause of death at the end of the piece. But there's a linguistic hook too; Wonkette writes:
Evil Nazi war criminal KurtWaldheim is finally dead at 88.
Experts say having Waldheim lead the UN is about as absurd as Henry Kissinger winning the Nobel Peace Prize. But as both of these things actually happened, linguists suggested the word “absurd” be replaced with “pretty much par for the course.” The CIA, of course, knew all about his Nazi past long before he became secretary general of the UN in 1971.Man, I haven't ever gotten used to the military use of 'linguist' for 'language specialist' and now we're, what, copy editors?
