Gratuitous bitching: have you clocked the 'Beotrag' naming of the department store, at the bottom of the page?

I love it, that is what we always call the store! I also have fond memories of getting the newspaper at the "gybah" (rhymes with Timothy Ryback) stand.

Thanks for defending me, Eric.... It's also been referred to as "Beo-drag" in some circles...

The caption to the photo that your "disguise" link jumps to: "Karadžić, aka Dragan Dabić, speaks in a forum dedicated to healthy lifestyles". We really are living in a post-modern world.

Thanks Eric for your great article - I forwarded it to my human rights class which happened to be studying genocide today. Enjoying your updates and humor...
