Old Scars

It's 2004 and Nicolae Ceausescu is in his second decade of Hell, courtesy of his ultra-leaded sendoff via firing squad. In Romania there's a new Constitution, they've undergone several changes in governments, they have made enormous progress detoxifying society, and things are looking up for them.

Americans have a lot to appreciate, most of all the little things.
