I have a few short announcements before the weekend. Next week will be a bit of an unusual week for me, I'm not likely to spend a great deal of time around the computer after Tuesday, although I will try to post something short on Thursday and Friday. I actually have been anticipating this and will wrap up some articles this weekend that I will save as drafts and post later in the week.
Also, The Accidental Russophile has a new member, Natasha Andreyeva (Somnevaushayasya), who will hopefully be contributing on political topics. Her posts will be in Russian, which I hope will encourage more Russian readers and also might challenge me to improve my own Russian. I think Natasha will also give us a very authentic Russian point-of-view on political topics and might lend itself to more discussions and challenge American-centric points of view.
