    My friend, Yahuda, is originally from the Ukraine and he is, naturally, very concerned about what is going on. He is a very pragmatic man and doesn't really "take sides". As he says, there are no real "good guys" in any of this. Of course, as a Jew, he's particularly concerned about his relatives. History hasn't treated the Ukranian Jews very well, as we all know.

    As always, very powerful, wealthy and connected people play their games and the regular man and woman on the ground always ends up getting hurt.

    IMHO, Obama has been a very mediocre president, at best. It is my fervent hope that he rises to the occasion in this situation and does whatever to minimize human suffering. He could go down as a great man in history if this is handled properly...or not.

    Again, thank you.
