Not exactly Walter Winchell, but …..


For those young people looking at this blog, Walter Winchell was a reporter know for short news scoops that appeared in newspapers during the 20th Century. Newspapers were those things people carried around and read before the Internet. The 20th Century was that bygone era before the invention of the tweet and text message, it was an unusual period in our history when people communicated with each other using actual voices.

With that as background, the following might make sense. Recently a few brief observations from my recent trip to Russia were published on the editorial page of Russia Now, a newspaper supplement distributed in 13 countries with a circulation of over 5 million. In America, the paper is distributed in the New York Times and Washington Post. Thought you might like to see.
