Well Shut My Mouth

You may have noticed that I often mock the government of my beloved Russia for changing its history through editting school history books and school curricula. Well, a rare kudos to the Russian Ministry of Education who, according to the Kyiv Post, recently made Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn's The Gulag Archipelago required reading for high school students because of its historical and cultural relevance for learning about 20th century Russia. If any of the students actually do their required reading do you think a couple heads will explode?
