The Swift Feet of Justice 

Ah, the pitter patter of the swift feet of justice as the great lady scurries to set things right in Gold Medal time!

Pinochet has lost his immunity.

It looks like the man will meet his well-deserved fate. Execution by old age.

And you gotta love the language the article uses...my favorite part?
The ruling came in a lawsuit brought on behalf of victims of "Operation Condor," a repression plan implemented by the military dictatorships that ruled South American nation in the 1970s and '80s. Pinochet took power in a coup in 1973 in which the elected president, leftist Salvador Allende, was assassinated.
Notice that passive voice. "was assassinated," as if the assassination just fell out of the sky and landed on his head.
