As some of you noticed, I haven’t blogged in almost a month. I’ve missed commenting on a lot of news—the outcome of the Gazprom-Ukraine crisis, the continued politics of natural gas supply and demand, the recent British spy scandal and its potential effect on NGOs, in addition to a whole host of big and small stories. What a time to be too busy to blog! As some of you know, I’m writing my dissertation in Russian history on the Young Communist League in the 1920s. An upcoming deadline for a chapter, applying for writing grants, and beginning to teach has absorbed most of my time over the last month. Some of these things (grant writing and chapter deadline) will pass in the next few weeks. I plan on returning to regular blogging then.
