Berlin Wall

Since I missed posting this on the 20th anniversary last November, I'll post today to commemorate the nuclear treaty signed between the U.S. and Russia. There is no snow, no water, not even a globe, but a piece of an infamous wall and some so-so designed pins represent the city as good as any winter scene. If you saw a little piece of wall under glass from across the room, what would you guess it was?

I should be less interested in this, as these pieces are for sale everywhere in Berlin in true tourist trap fashion. Alas, the pure emotion from the fucking wall falling is too huge to deny. And here it is, an actual piece.

In other cold war news, there was a report that California might have a Ronald Reagan holiday. Will the Hollywood Blacklist be part of the celebration?
