I noted in your email to Flo that you had a background in Russian. Small world. I studied Russian for 3 years at Georgetown. At the time all I knew is that there was a grand global competition between the U.S. and Russia and someone would eventually win. If we won, it wouldn't hurt if I spoke a little Russian. If they won, it REALLY wouldn't hurt is I spoke a little Russian. 20 years later in 1989 when the Wall was coming down, all I remembered was DA and NYET. Noting my language skill, my firm at the time (Deloitte) sent me to open the Moscow office where I remained until 1996. I look forward to comparing notes at the reunion.
