I sure in heck didn't expect this!
As you probably know, shakeups are in the works in Ukraine, as the Orange Revolution recedes into the past and practical politics take over. Do I know anything about it? No. Nothing. Fortunately, however, our good friend King Baniain, chairman of the Economics Department at St. Cloud State University, was formerly an economic adviser to the Ukrainian government, knows many of the relevant players, and continues to follow the situation closely. So if you want to know a lot more about what is happening in Eastern Europe, one of the world's most pivotal areas, than we or the New York Times can tell you, check out King's site...Thanks a million, John! And welcome. If you missed the first three years and are interested in Ukraine, just come along to the next article.
And yes, I'll be on NARN tomorrow to celebrate the bloggiversary (and, coincidentally, my parents' 55th anniversary). Tune to AM1280 the Patriot or directly to the streaming audio, 12-3pm CT.
