Lenin has fallen Thank God

Lenin has fallen
Thank God there’s always Seattle
for Soviet kitsch. It’s days are numbered throughout Central Asia. I
saw one of the last Soviet WWII monuments in Uzbekistan walled over
when I was in the Peace Corps (it was right outside my apartment – and
I never took a picture of it!). Eurasianet has a photo essay on the fall of Bishkek’s Lenin that I mentioned yesterday.
