Stalin Statue Toppled


In Gori, Georgia -- the hometown of Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin -- authorities removed from the central square a towering statue of Khruschev's predecessor, a man who murdered many more people than Hitler.

In a manner which would have made the old tyrant proud, the toppling of the statue was conducted in the dead of night and was attended by the beating of journalists who attempted to cover the clandestine event.

For his effective campaign to forcibly secularize his country, Uncle Joe is still revered in areas of his homeland, American Ivy League colleges, the New York Times, and by individuals perhaps not unwelcome in the current White House.
