Stalin? -- REALLY?
Visiting the political blog Zombie's latest photographic coverage and commentary of the "Occupy Wall Street" protests in OWS-Oakland and similar demonstrations across the nation, I'm struck by the myriad t-shirts sporting images of Communist icons -- of course, there is the ubiquitous Che Guevera, but these days even Stalin, Lenin and Ho Chi Minh are making quite the comeback. That kids would find such figures worth emulating and adoring is a testimony to their historical ignorance.
