rest in peace

i've been meaning to make note of this for sometime: r.i.p. vang pao; his funeral was held this week in fresno, california. regardless of your feelings about the war and the cia's illegal incursion into Laos, the man was truly "bigger than life," to quote gayle morrison, a hmong historian.

vang pao (vaj pov); December 25, 1929 – January 6, 2011
