Saturday's Washington Post had an oped by Nadia Diuk with this lovely passage:
...[J]ust one gesture, or the display of a symbol -- the red-and-white logo of Solidarity -- conveyed a whole set of aspirations, attitudes and emotions. Now the color orange is the symbol throughout the center of Kiev. Everyone understands what is at stake, and everyone stands united. The Czechs jingled keys, the Serbs showed a fist, the Georgians adopted the rose, and now the Ukrainians wear orange.
Ukrainians were not the first, nor will they be the last. The only uncertainty is which of the rotten totalitarian regimes will be the next to be toppled.Posted by Ideofact at December 5, 2004 11:27 PM | TrackBack
