Just a reminder that Stalin (as well as some other really really horrible people) was fond of using the phrase vrog naroda or “enemy of the people/nation” to describe anyone who didn’t agree with him. Those people often ended up dead or in labor/prison camps. Let’ s hope we’re on a better road than that.
In the meantime, I offer my gratitude to journalists for all the vital work they do.
I also wrote a tanka. It’ s not my best work, but it’s from the heart 😉

Nurture the Lie of Fake News
And Starve the Free Press
And Too Soon, Fools We Become
If We Lack Will to Resist
