The simple truth is that I shall have to peruse the article very carefully later. Feeling loquacious though, herewith a few thoughts. Ah thought I, another Polly Toynabee- socialist polemicist of dear old England. Then I saw the name, Anna Politskovskaya. Visions of Czarist Russia danced before my eyes. Yes, of Chekov and Dostoevski, lovely name for the lady.

It is Russia that disolved the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, it is Russia that perhaps took heed of President Reagan to some extent with a more open society. It is Russia that took back the Chechens. Stalin abolished their republic in 1945. Krushchev brought them back.

What have they repaid Russia with?.

I hold this to be true. Though a Socialist, Prime Minister Clement Atlee (1945-1951) was one of the greatest British humanitarians that ever lived. (Re the Galician Division). George W. Bush is the finest human being for our times. At other times he may have been the wrong man. He is neither a weak pacifist, an appeaser; nor is he an unfeeling power drunk wielder of the immense power he has. How lucky America is.

I am tempted to cancel this post. In for the evening, I glance at a beverage I have just imbibed- Smirnoff. Ah well..... Cheers.
