  •  Thanks Jerome -- Cold War slant in the news (0+ / 0-)

    Thanks Jerome--we've must keep up the effort to minimize the effect of this revival of a cold war theme in the news.  --Even the subtle nuances, such as, for example, this wording in today's Houston Chronicle:

    U.S. warship arrives in Georgia with aid for battered ally  Just the word, ally, is suggestive of the cold war days.  Is it journalistic zeal?  Is it needing an adrenalin rush?  Or is the news being intentionally slanted in that direction?

    Look at the title of this article in the NYT!

    Putin in the Shadow of the Red Czar

    It's going to take a lot of us posting counter to this theme to have any effect on its dissolution!  I like to think if we continue to humanize the Russians to our public while expressing true understanding of what is going on there as you have, might be a good beginning.
