RIP Gerry Conlon -- wrongfully jailed for 'being Irish in the wrong place'
"When Gerry Conlon, who has died aged 60 of lung cancer, met survivors of
the US's Guantánamo Bay detention camp, he found that their 21st-century
experiences mirrored his in the 1970s," The Guardian wrote
<http://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2014/jun/22/gerry-conlon> about the
Belfast-born Conlon who passed away on June 21.
