Former ProgressiveHistorians blogger and political scientist Gene Keyes (esperanto41) has republished an excellent article on Finland's Winter War that he originally wrote in 1972. A portion of this article was published in Crossroads: An International Socio-Political Journal in 1985.

If you're going to be in Boston on November 19, stop by Faneuil Hall at 7 PM for a free reading of the letters of John and Abagail Adams by -- get this -- Governor and Mrs. Patrick and former Governor and Mrs. Dukakis. The event is sponsored by the Massachusetts Historical Society and Harvard University Press, which is releasing a new collection of the Adams letters.

Hello Everyone -

Since the diary format is no more here, I thought I would plug my interview of Paul Grondahl today, at my blog the Intrepid Liberal Journal. Paul's book Mayor Erastus Corning: Albany Icon, Albany Enigma was released in paperback by SUNY Press earlier this year. It's a podcast interview.
