Historical Anniversaries: Muammar Gadhafi Takes Power

As the various this-day-in-history sites remind us, today is the anniversary of the day, 42 years ago, when Colonel Muammar Gaddafi (or Qaddafi, as we used to spell it, and Gadhafi, as we are often now spelling it) overthrew King Idris of Libya.

I just have one thing to say:  So, how's that evil dictator thing working out for you these days??
