Rubin ‘Hurricane’ Carter, U.S. boxer famous in folk song, dies at 76

(Reuters) - Former U.S. professional boxer Rubin “Hurricane” Carter, who spent 19 years in prison for murder and then was released after it was determined he did not get a fair trial, died on Sunday at the age of 76, according to his friend and caretaker John Artis.

Carter, considered a folk hero by many and immortalized in film and song, had been battling prostate cancer for nearly three years, Artis said. He died at home in Toronto, where he had been living since he was released from prison in 1985.

"Those who are wrongfully incarcerated lost a champion," Artis said. "He dedicated his life to helping the people that need the same kind of assistance that we needed, who have been wrongfully convicted and incarcerated."

Name Calling
So, Ikea naming doormats and other floor things after Danish places is indeed a thing that happened. The Danes complained it meant Swedes wanted to walk all over Danes, but the Swedes brushed it off saying it meant Swedes considered the Danes robust and someone to count on.One day the Swedes and Danes will stop acting like children, but today is not that day. XD
