NB: This newsletter's editorial practice is to highlight, and provide, the original source of an article. Occassionally that practice is subverted to a higher purpose. In this case, the connections between the independent media. N.S. Baldwin is a journalist, and a good one. She is now editor of her site, Understanding Russia, wherein she republishes thoughtful publications. Thus, here I link to her, rather than directly to Consortium News to highlight these interconnections.
