I am usually pretty light handed with political blogging, world affairs especially.
But goddam, these people were impressive.
The dust hasn’t settled yet. I only ask myself: if I were as sure of my government’s betrayal as were the protesters on Kiev’s Maidan, would I have the balls to go out there and hold a fort — an ice fort, at that — all winter in fifteen degrees Fahrenheit? Even before you factor in the riot police?
And then put a Cossack snowman on the ramparts?
One death is too much, but so great a change for so little bloodshed is rare. May it end as well as revolutions ever do.
