Golly. I had missed this. (hat tip hls.) I remember the 'eighties. It was a different time. If you were a good liberal, you hated Reagan and were understanding of the Soviets. Indeed, it was the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan and its coverage in the British press that finally peeled the scales from my eyes. When it finally got through my thick skull that if it walks and talks like an evil empire, maybe it really is an evil empire, my good lefty-liberalism began to unravel. Most unfortunate, really, as I would have been a much happier camper at law school had I remained a useful idiot. Oh well. But I plan to have a big wake too by providing free booze and lots of it to students and colleagues.
