Satirical newspaper sums up Mandela sentiment with tongue-in-cheek headline

December 6th, 2013
10:29 AM ET

The satirical American newspaper "The Onion" has pretty well summed up world sentiment about the death of Nelson Mandela with its tongue-in-cheek headline, "Nelson Mandela Becomes First Politician To Be Missed," says Christiane Amanpour.

"Following the death of former South African president and civil rights leader Nelson Mandela today at the age of 95," the post says, "sources confirmed that the revered humanitarian has become the first politician in recorded history to actually be missed."

    Hiya, I am really glad I have found this information. Nowadays bloggers publish just about gossips and net and this is really irritating. A good website with interesting content, that is what I need. Thank you for keeping this web-site, I'll be visiting it. Do you do newsletters? Can not find it.
