Hey, Mister Pinochet

Another old man has passed on, and I hear that all the liquor stores in Chile are out of champagne.

All I can do is wrestle with the fact that his name is correctly pronounced with the final "T", at odds with around half of the correspondents I hear reporting on the news. Also in the crowd that prefers "pin-oh-shay" are myself and Sting, but I guess we're all wrong.
