Gen. Jaruzelski Dies

Those of us of a certain age may remember the name of Wojciech Jaruzelski from the news. He died yesterday at the age of 90.

In case you are much younger than I and don’t recall the name… he had something to do with a brand new saint: Pope Saint John Paul II. Here is an interview with Cdl. Dziwisz, and you can Google for much more.

Here is his obit in the New York Times. According to that, he was originally Catholic. So, one could say a prayer for his soul, and a prayer of thanks for the life of Pope Saint John Paul II.

UPDATE: NCR has a good article out today: The Death the Life of Gen. Wojciech Jaruzelski: Another Look.
