May he rot in hell

Few people defined the horror of the 20th century more than Joseph Stalin.  We can’t do anything to change the mass graveyards he created, but what we can do is celebrate his death on March 5, 1953.  So, huzzah, the monster is dead, though it took him far too long to do us that courtesy. I can only hope that his final hours were filled with the abject terror he visited upon so many millions.
