There’s much blather written about Russia. Here are two e-books to help you understand us through our popular culture/shared experience and our food. Fuck the academics, pundits, and CIA analysts (and phony Stratfor wannabes)… find out the REAL DEAL. Log onto Amazon and buy ‘em! It’s about 11 bucks for both. DO IT… at least, it’ll make some of my pop Russian allusions come alive for you. For instance, in the above editorial cartoon, all Russians know that Indian Summer is баба лето (baba leto: Grandma’s Summer), and the use of the grandma isn’t only obvious, it’s iconic… but it went over the Anglos’ heads, didn’t it? That’s why you should buy these two (CHEAP) books…

I get nothing for this… they’re just two things that I find useful in explaining our character to people…
