Simon Wiesenthal, R.I.P.

Kat, at The Middle Ground, has the best writing on the death of Simon Wiesenthal that I have seen anywhere.

The world has lost a spirit of tremendous fire.

"Maybe it's my craziness," he told the Los Angeles Times in 1990. "Because I will never stop. I tell my wife, 'The great things in life are never done by normal people. They're done by crazy people.'."
