A Bad Man in Africa

Anthony Daniels wrote a good piece on the tyrant Charles Taylor a few weeks back that is worth reading. It comes from New Criterion’s new blog called Armavirumque, and it is worth a look. Good name, by the way, and I am betting that it is not meant to evoke George Barnard Shaw’s play Arms and the Man, but rather Virgil’s opening words in the Aeneid, which in turn evokes the war in the Iliad and the start of the Odyssey.
