"Suharto Dead"

Indonesian dictator Suharto is one of those people who I’d vaguely assumed was already dead until I read a story about his demise. I’m not sure I have much to say about Suharto beyond the obvious — bad man, killed lots of people, etc. — but John Quiggin has an interesting post making the case that since his departure from power “Indonesia has been remarkably successful in dealing with what was, in many respects, a poisonous legacy from the Suharto era.”
