Goodbye Mr. Solzhenitsyn


The New York Times reports today that Alexandr Solzhenitsyn died at 89 of heart conditions.

I read his book One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich when I was in high school at my debate coach’s recommendation.

It truly was a fascinating account of the horrors of the Soviet prison system under Stalin.

Today we have lost a freedom fighter as well as a very strong writer.
