Kire Popov

Nice blog. I am glad to see you are still at NSU.
You are the best.



What a great pleasure it is to hear from you. I haven't forgotten my favorite Macedonian. Send me an e-mail and let me know what you are up to. My address is at the top. And thanks for the kind words.


I've been thinking about Cuba... and about the decline of Communism in general.

P.J. O'Rourke once said that the fall of Communism in East Germany didn't happen because of guns and bombs, but rather it was Coca-Cola and Walkmans. We inundated the East Germans with our goods, they realized theirs sucked and they were hooked.

The 40-plus year embargo on Cuba doesn't seem to make a lot of sense, especially since the regime is still there, popular as ever. But if we could bring in our Coca-Cola and iPods (hey, it's the 21st Century), we can cause Castro to fall down and go boom.
