      I am always staggered by Americans' lack of basic historical knowledge, even when it comes to recent events. What is more amazing: the 'defiant ignorance' that happens when those who consider themselves well informed pontificate without knowing many (or all) of the facts.

      One bizarre byproduct of the horrific events in Boston: among all the bad reporting, there have been a few excellent articles explaining the complex history of Chechnya, Dagestan, Kyrgyzstan and Russian/Soviet policy in those regions. Yours ranks at the top. Thank you.

      Ho'oponopono. To make things right; restore harmony; heal.
