The former dictator of the evil empire, the Soviet Union's Mikhail Gorbachev was distressed after visiting New Orleans in the Katrina aftermath. Was he this distress after Chernobyl? Was he this distressed about the gulags he maintained? Did the fact that Stalin murdered around 30 million of his own people distress Mikhail Gorbachev? Perhaps Mr. Gorbachev is looking to run for political office as a Democrat in Louisiana?
