if only someone important or in power had made it.
SO according to the New York Times, on his video blog, my vote for most adorable head of state, Dima Medvezhonok, "warned Friday that Russians had lost their sense of horror over Stalin’s purges, and called for the construction of museums and memorial centers devoted to the atrocities, as well as further efforts to unearth and identify the dead."
Wow. Didn't see that coming. Much appreciated that we're finally seeing the importance of accurately describing history, so that we are not doomed to repeat it and forget it over and over again. I hope there is some follow-through on this.
