My thanks to Brende for sending me this one.
After all that, do you really want a bit of humor?
Rudolph Kavnikoff is a member of the Communist Party in Russia, and he is known for his obstinancy,
especially when he thinks he is right, which is most of the time. One evening he comes home from work and tells his wife that it is raining outside.
"No, dear," she says, "it's snowing."
"I said it's raining!"
"Look, wife," he says, "Rudolph, the Red, knows rain, dear!"
