Sad news.

The great Russian author, recipient of the Nobel Prize for Literature, gulag survivor, exile and eventual returnee Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn has passed away.

If you've never had a chance to read 'One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich' or haven't done so in years, then this would be a good time to pick a copy up.

I've already pulled my copy off the shelf and will be rereading it, most likely learning something new about myself, the author and the world while doing it.
