    Gone on at 95. He certainly fought the good fight.

    It will be interesting to hear, in the coming days, how much is made of the early years and the bombings by the group he co-founded.

    Yeah, but some of the saints weren't what you would expect either. That being said, it's not just something that's given out. I don't know all of his personal dealings, but I don't know that helping bring your country out of bad times necessary warrants sainthood.

    Thank you George. The media has whitewashed Mandela into virual sainthood.

    True words. Those who bow at his shrine have drunk the Kool-Aid.
