A Better Disguise for Karadžić

A friend from Sarajevo sent an image (left) that might have made a better disguise for Radovan Karadžić.

Jelena Markovic also has some terrific posts on the arrest -- from her personal viewpoint.

In other Karadžić news, the Times of London reports that St. Radovan cured a child of autism.

In the Independent, Vesna Peric Zimonjic crystallizes what a lot of my friends and I have discussed over the past two days -- news coverage in Serbia and elsewhere has essentially glorified the life of the fugitive on the run at the expense of reminding the world of the heinous crimes that he has committed. One hopes that once the shock wears off, the horror will come back to the foreground. (Michael Dawson makes a good start on that process with this column in the Independent, which features many of the most sickening stanzas in Karadžić's poems.)
