Charlie, my comment was not aimed at any one person in particular. It was a general comment for everyone. However saying thank G-d that someone died is certainly not within our expected behaviors here.
I'm sorry - I didn't realize there was so much controversy surrounding this man. I had only read some of his books when I was young and was profoundly impacted by them. From reading your response Charlie, I did some more research and I can see why you feel so strongly. He appears to have been a very troubled man. Perhaps because of his own imprisonment. Sometimes being tested in terrible ways doesn't bring out a man's higher nature but instead riddles them with hatred. I really don't know in his case but I'm sorry if this brought up unpleasant memories for you, my friend.
