More on Pinochet and Chile

Britney Spears has been the #1 hit-getter on Technocrati for weeks now, but today Pinochet has unseated her!

Here is the excellent obituary from the New York Times, which provides a comprehensive look at Chile under both Allende and Pinochet.

The NYT reports mixed reactions on the streets of Santiago, and in the government.

The reaction of Chilean bloggers to Pinochet's death.

My irreverent Chilean friend Montse's blog.

Christopher Hitchens on Pinochet's crimes outside of Chile, and the spectrum of his influence.

For those who can read Spanish, here is Santiago's El Mercurio online, which includes a timeline on Pinochet, and breaking news on the national reaction.
