Quote of the Day

Our quote of the day comes from Martin Peretz, editor-in-chief of the New Republic, in 1989.

“The cheer with which Western commentators greeted Mikhail Gorbachev’s tease that the Berlin Wall might come down when the conditions that generate the need for it disappear is another sign of how credulous we have become in receiving blandishments from Moscow.”

Thank god we had people like Peretz looking out for us.
