“I don’t think anybody else around here ever heard of this guy.”

Shevardnadze was the public face of the Soviet Union and then breakaway Georgia, so he is a very familiar face for those of us who kept up with the news of foreign affairs in earlier decades. Shevardnadze was often complementary of President Reagan in the aftermath of the dissolution of the Soviet Union.

I have somewhat positive memories of Shevardnadze from what I saw. Beyond that, I don’t know.

That’s the way I remember it too.

This thread has really made me feel old. Is there, maybe, another thread about Shevardnadze, with a healthy amount of comments from FReepers who remember the last couple decades of the 2nd millennium? Or is everybody busy talking about sports, celebrities and talk shows?
