Mikhail Gorbachev will be giving a talk in Montreal on October 21. I can’t believe I can’t be there! The cheapest ticket is, of course, $350 but I would have totally found the money. It would be great to hear what Gorbachev has to say about Russia’s future now that Putin has voted himself back into the presidency of the Russian Federation.
Gorbachev turned 80 this year, which is 24 years longer than an average life expectancy for a male in his country. I hope he lives for at least 80 more years but you just never know.
So if you are in Montreal, consider going and then telling me all about it.
