Over at Frank Warner’s place a commenter was arguing that he would rather live in a police state or military dictatorship judging by how poor some of the free East European nations like Romania and Bulgaria are. I disagreed; I said I would gladly live in those countries and take advantage of the freedom afforded to me in order to make something of my life.
Well, after reading the Afghanistan news round-up from Miserable Donuts, and seeing that picture at right, I haven’t changed my mind. Romania seem like a fine, fine place to live. Is there a Global War on Ugliness? Because if there is I think we’re winning.
