On Dec. 21, 1988, Moammar Gaddafi killed Theodora Cohen. That’s one way of putting it. Cohen was one of 259 passengers and crew on Pan Am Flight 103. I remember her for obvious reasons and also because, to paraphrase the writer Erich Maria Remarque, the death of one woman is a tragedy, the death of millions is a statistic. Gaddafi has his statistics, but it is tragedy we are talking about today. There is much more to come.
