We've been praying a lot

in response to reader comment: Nukes "safely" removed to Romania?!

Hi, Vladdi

With a name like "Vlad", you might be familiar with the Russians, Romanians and especially Moldovans (where everyone seems to be named Vlad). I've only known a couple of Romanians -- a graduate student and a Christian refugee from the Ceausescu days. They both are pretty decent people; but the country as a whole seems notable for borders that are "porous at price", in its best light.

The latest I see on the Web, is that Romania strongly denies receiving any nukes, and the Americans aren't talking. In fact, the US doesn't even "officially" have nukes in Turkey, I guess -- it's just been an open secret. Those nukes, which I suppose are really there, are in danger, it seems, of falling into Turkish hands if they go the way of Tehran '79; and with Obama in charge of the world, I'm starting to long for the "safer" days when Jimmy Carter ran things :-O

The Turks, meanwhile, seem to have their fingers into EVERYONE's technology: American, French, British, you name it:

We certainly live in interesting times, don't we? Even the deer around here seem to know something's up. My wife and I have been doing more praying than usual, of late.
