Well, thanks for the kind words. I'll be here a few more days, and will try to get another couple of posts up.

(BTW, when does The Big Ditch come out? Any plans for the launch?)

Third, we have Jussi Jalonen on the significance of Kaarlo Kurlo, a Finnish soldier who volunteered to fight in the Polish-Soviet war of 1919-21. It is fascinating stuff, which in a time gone by would have appeared on this blog here. (Yes, that makes me sad. But ni modo, progress is progress.)

Don't be sad. It's just that the book was finally published, Randy approached with a suggestion for a weblog collaboration, and all this happened during your absence.

I can reserve something more suitable for you in the future. We have elections coming up in the next April, for example.

As a foreign minister, Stubb is an interesting personality; a right-wing Swedish-speaking liberal technocrat with quite a strong background in the EU tasks, who chose to accept the National Coalition as his party of choice, when he was asked.

He's also running for the parliament, for the first time - he was a MEP when he was called to serve as a foreign minister.

Finnish election blogging! That would be great. I'm looking forward to it!

Europe was in more of a spit than I had originally thought....if the defense budget is dwindling, well, it's not a good thing because we still don't live in a 100% safe world just yet.
