I'm tired of the constant barrage of well-deserved criticism we Westerners receive from the cross-cultural experts. If in fact the problem is so extensive (as I believe it is), then why not take some action to lessen these embarrassing episodes of cultural insensitivity by sending out the cream of the crop while continuing to strengthen others at home who seem less adequately prepared to quickly assimilate?
Thanks for keeping us adequately informed of the ever-changing cultural-religious climate in Central Europe and the CIS. Keep up the good work!
No Laughing Matter
I especially liked the article: "A Moratorium on Russian Jokes?" -- we have a rule on our team NOT to make such jokes or remarks, especially in the presence of Russians. It's good to see the word is getting around.
Thanks for your good work!
