Afterthoughts

I love it! The Cold War is back. At last, something to distract us from ho-hum domestic issues like school violence.

Washington kicks out 50 Russians and Moscow kicks out 50 Americans. This nostalgic exercise is known in the Russian language as "Titski-for-tatski."

The Russians are shocked, shocked about the "secret" tunnel under their embassy in Washington, which they have known about for 15 years. I half expected them to drop the MIR on Cleveland.

Cold War tension with the Ruskies. A bear market. Decency in the White House. I'm surprised that "Gigi" didn't win Best Picture.
