One Less Scumbag to Worry About: Saudi Arabia’s King Abdullah Dies at Age 90

Saudi Arabia’s King Abdullah has died and his brother Salman has become the kingdom’s new ruler.  King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz took power in 2005 after the death of his half-brother King Fahd.  The monarch was thought to be 91-years-old, however official accounts of his age are unclear.  He underwent surgery in recent years related to a herniated disc, and was hospitalised in December for pneumonia.
