Augusto Pinochet introduced the usage of the word “disappear” as a transitive verb.

Now he’s going to get disappeared, in a flash.

According to AFP:

“Pinochet's remains will be cremated at an undisclosed location. His son has said the family do not want a burial because they fear Pinochet's enemies would vandalize his grave.”

Pud says, “No entity on earth, private or governmental, has the resources and/or desire to protect his grave. Hey, kid, doesn’t that tell you something?”

Another line that jumped out:

“The priest read a service for the general, a Roman Catholic who once said he had been called by God to lead Chile.”

Pud says, “Hey, Catholics, way to go!”
