    My sincere condolences then to Galtung's son. The son clearly seems to be a reasonable man -- and one who now has a father who has likely expressed beliefs and views which he kept hidden for many many years. This is the beauty of old age, people do not care anymore about hiding things. You find out what people truly believe. This isn't "senility" or "craziness" -- it's the tiredness brought on by old-age -- the feeling of being tired of hiding something you have believed in for a very long time. As a Jew, I'm damned happy Galtung has finally stepped in his own pile of chara. I also feel bad for the son. To Galtung's son: nobody blames you for your father's views. You have shown yourself to be a good man by living in Tel Aviv -- and I of course applaud your wife's background. Purely out of curiosity I wonder if you held a Seder this year? Anyone know? Either way, you have my sympathies: son-of-Galtung.
