The hangman misses out on a pair of boots

Former Chilean dictator Gen. Augusto Pinochet has died, a military hospital in Santiago said Sunday.
Days earlier, he had been moved from the Santiago Military Hospital's intensive care unit to an intermediate care room.
Pinochet, 91, had been at the hospital since Dec. 3, when he suffered what doctors described as an acute heart attack.
Doctors performed an angioplasty, in which a catheter is introduced into a clogged artery to enlarge it and allow restoration of blood flow to the heart.
