I see Idi Amin Dada, ex-tyrant of Uganda, went to meet his maker while we were in Mitzpe Ramon this weekend. You'll remember we also had an axe to grind with him, here in Israel. He lived to the ripe old age of 80, and died comfortably in a Saudi hospital, unlike hundreds of thousands of his countrymen whom he slaughtered, many by reportedly feeding them to the crocodiles (Hebrew link), and unlike our own seventy-three-year-old Dora Bloch who was dragged from her hospital bed in Entebbe, and brutally murdered, following Operation Entebbe. Charming man.
