  1. All I can say is, I’m glad Brezhnev and Yeltsin never felt the need to regularly pose shirtless for publicity shots.

    “And the communist regimes fell like dominoes. The dissident movement in Prague grew each day; in late November Václav Havel and Alexander Dubček stood before a cheering crowd of a quarter of a million people. Stasi offices all over East Germany were attacked and rifled. In Sofia, 50,000 Bulgarians demonstrated against the Communist Party’s hegemony. In Bucharest, Ceauşescu and his wife Elena were booed by the crowd, riots broke out, and the Rumanian Army stopped following orders.
    “Meanwhile, an unknown KGB agent in Dresden, Vladimir Putin, tried to pile so many documents into a burning stove that the thing exploded.”
