 My productivity's more stable than it was last fall when I dropped off the face of the blogosphere, but I'm not quite comfortable back in the saddle yet, and there are days when a given blogging subject seems to have too many handholds  and I don't know where or how I want to climb onto it.

No profound essays today, but I'm still here, still intending to stick around.and keep posting.  My profound thoughts today are all centered around the notion that two Italian kids with no money seemed to be able to compile as much data on the Soviet space program as the entire apparatus of NASA did.  I'm a touch skeptical, given the source, but it's an interesting tale.

Second, have the unexpected delight of the Red Army Choir singing 'Sixteen Tons'.  I've been doing some reading lately on Russia & the USA's political relationship, currently and historically, and so I find this especially substance-rich.  How much common ground is there between what the song means to me and what it means to them?  How vast is the distance in perspective between the unshared grounds?
