This perhaps was the misconception of Florentiev when he met me. He probably thought at first that I was just another dewey-eyed liberal such as what disgusted him with the American audience. Actually, just telling him my name was "PJ" wasn't enough since he didn't realize who I was. It wasn't until after I did the bit about Stalin and gave him my last name as well when the recognition came. Sometimes being on a strictly first name basis isn't the best policy.
Sorry, my FRiend, I thought I was being transparently facetious as I am obviously quite impressed with yer endeavors overseas.
"Had they known that Ol' PJ was a "vicious rightwinger" they would never have allowed my writings in Krokodil (although Florentiev and the staffers would have appreciated it) so I kept my writings strictly non-political."
LOL...I know the process, mi amigo, as I have set up Dummy Accounts at both the Smirking Chimpster and DemonRAT Underground to write similarly subversive propaganda!!! BWAHAHAHA...ain't it fun givin' the Leftist TROLLS a bit of their own medicine?!!
