How to know you've been reading too much about Stalin
This morning, while at a bus stop I don't wait at very often, I noticed a sign for Autocraft Driving School, which I read as Autocrat Driving School for at least five minutes, trying to imagine where the name came from - are they that strict? And perhaps you be sentenced to an auto-da-fe if you don't parallel park properly? I'm nearly finished with Children of the Arbat now, and good thing too given the fact that I'm seeing despots everywhere. That and the phenomenal amount of reading on neuron morphology that I have to do!
