NY Times with full obit today on the general who commanded the British paratroopers who killed 13 on Bloody Sunday in Ireland in 1972. He was wrongly exonerated, although Brits decades later came to admit unwarranted slayings. One of great movies of recent years, Paul Greengrass's Bloody Sunday got it right, with the great Tim Pigott-Smith as the general. It's a must-see.
