The day has come

Back in 1989 as we watched the Berlin Wall falling, I remember remarking to someone that I would find myself some day explaining to my children what Communism had once been.

This morning, young F. caught a newspaper headline about the Arab revolutions and asked about revolutions in general. This rapidly got us to 1989, and his next question was, "So what was Communism?"

The day has come.
