    This article on Comment is Free, from the former editor of the Sri Lankan Sunday Leader was published in the that newspaper three days after he was shot dead in Colombo. It’s extraordinary. But he makes one sanguine point, in Sri Lanka there are no baddies and goodies. There are no winners, only losers: the Sri Lankan people.
