Austere Terrorist

I’m preparing a lecture about Peru and wanted to look up headlines about the recent death of Abimael Guzman, the leader of the Maoist terrorist organization The Shining Path.

Immediately, I found a Peruvian article and its reprint in The New York Times. The Peruvian title was “Abimael Guzman, the leader of the most dangerous terrorist organization in Peru, dies.”. The NYTimes title for the same article was “Abimael Guzman, the leader of the Shining Path, dies.”

Not quite at the level of “austere religious scholar” but still.

Truly, I respect the people who took the Pravda seriously more than the tools who still read the NYTimes.
