Vaclav Havel

The New York Times reports that Vaclav Havel, the dissident playwright who later became the hero of Czechoslovakia's "Velvet Revolution" and then the country's president, has died at the age of 75.   He oversaw the country's transition to democracy and its peaceful transition in 1993 into the nations of the Czech Republic and Slovakia.
