So long, Forest Brigand

The New York Times' annual list of interesting folks who hopped a train to the Big Adios this year features the Bandit King of India (you read about him first here at Crime Spree.)

A murderer, yes. But way cool:

"Veerappan's whiskers, a sign of virility in India, struck fear into the hearts of the hairless. His mustache lavishly covered his mouth and jaws; it looked like a small furry animal had died there."
