All's Well That Ends Well for Husband of Suicide Bomber in Russia

We've heard of the black widow phenomenon, but what do we call this guy? The black widower?

Nah, let's just call him dead meat:

Ending a nearly monthlong manhunt, security forces killed the husband of a suicide bomber who blew up a public bus last month in the city of Volgograd, Russian officials said Saturday.

Officials said the husband, Dmitri Sokolov, 21, was killed, along with four others identified as rebels, by security forces in Dagestan, a violence-plagued republic in the North Caucasus....

The bomber, Naida Asiyalova, blew herself up on a crowded No. 29 bus in the center of the city, killing six other passengers in a fiery blast that was recorded by the dashboard camera of a car traveling behind.

Sure, the Russians are undemocratic, autocratic, and each day becoming more and more fascistic ... but you know what? They know how to kill terrorists. And that's saying something.
