    Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela, a.k.a. Madiba, passed away last night at the age of 95. Rest in peace, Madiba, you will be missed.

    A sad day for the world. He was one of the world's true heroes.

    I just got this text message from my internet service provider:

    As MTN celebrates Mandela's life and his service to humanity, let us all remember his words: "The sun shall never set on so glorious a human achievement."

    Nothing I can add to that!

    I see someone did a 2 hour TV special on how SA moved into democracy. I wonder how well known his story is.
