  •  year before last, my wife and i spent a month in (0+ / 0-)

    the republic of georgia...we made a point of traveling to the town of gori - stalin's birthplace

    in addition to a giant statue of stalin in the town square (since removed), they have a stalin museum, built around the cabin he was born in...

    we took the museum tour with the english speaking guide - an older lady who got really upset every time i interrupted her to ask a question...of course her job is to promote stalin as one of the greatest men in history, although even she admitted, almost sotto voce, that "some people died"

    btw, i highly recommend travling to georgia - a truly fabulous country

    Kick a "job creator" in the balls today!
