Obit of the Day: Dead Together

March 5

1953 - Josef Stalin, leader of the U.S.S.R. from 1924 until his death at the age of 74. 

2013 - Hugo Chavez, president of Venezuela from 1999 until his death at the age of 58.

To be fair, although they both took advantage of the cult of personality, no one can match Stalin’s horrific history of mass imprisonment and government-sponsored murder.
