No more free Rukhnamas for American libraries? [Dec. 21st, 2006|11:20 am]
Just me.

The crazy dictator that sent my library Turkmenistan's most popular book
just died.

The yahoo article mentions a probable succession struggle, but not the crazy book or its influence on the culture. Even if there is a period of "uncertainty", I'm hoping things get better over there now that this dude is out of the picture.

And no, we didn't add his book to the collection.

It's a sad day when Turkmenistan is more free than we are.

Oh, don't worry, the new boss looks like he was hatched from the same mold as the old one.
