Polish Communist Version of Monopoly

January 25, 2011

I’ve always been amazed at our Polish friends’ sense of history.  Back when I visited Gdansk in 2003, I went to the Solidarity Museum with a group of Poles and Americans.*  Inside was a room-sized exhibit set up as a Communist-era grocery store.  After taking in the sites of almost bare shelves and a beverage [...]

September 17, 2009

July 7, 2009

A missile reduction treaty with the Soviet Union Russia?  With Iran on the verge of getting nukes, Eastern Europe fearing a return of Russian Imperialism and looking to America for support, with North Korea ready to ignite the planet, with heightened violence in Afghanistan, we’re reducing missiles with the Russians?  Huh?  Did I just step out of [...]

A Hint of Obama’s Competency?

November 11, 2008

Dominoes Are So Last Century

August 14, 2008

There were discussions.  There were negotiations.  They lasted years.  For some reason, today is the day Donald Tusk agreed to allow American-made missile interceptors on Polish soil.  In exchange, the United States will provide assistance to Poland so that they can strengthen their military. The timing of today’s agreement is obviously anything but a coincidence. [...]
