Austrian fascist dead

The curse of the REL strikes! Far right politician Jorge Haider is dead after a car accident. I do hope the car isn't a write off and can be salvaged. Perhaps this is one of those "If you could go back in time and kill Hitler would you?" moments and someone in the future or in an alternative universe has grabbed the bull by the balls. The world seems a slightly better place this morning. Sure, it would be better if the Austrian Revolutionary Marxist Party had seized the main government buildings in Vienna, but sometimes, you have to enjoy some small consolations.

Then again, should we find enjoyment and satisfaction in the death of other people? Frankly, sometimes, yes.
