Sic Semper Tyrannis

So I’m getting spam emails in Russian lately…

…which has been kinda fun. I spent a year at the Army's language school in Monterey, CA, studying Russian. I was there in 1991 and 1992, during that failed coup that brought Yeltsin to prominence.

Yeah, thanks Boris. The Soviet Union fell, and then so did all our job security. Russian speakers were like gold coins during the Cold War.

Anyway, it’s been a very long time since I used any Russian, but it’s been fun trying to read those emails.
