Late this afternoon, I was lying in bed with New Kitty (a.k.a Elliot) reading Anne Applebaum’s so-far-excellent book Gulag: A History. (I was rather exhausted after spending the day up in Boulder for the tail end of the Rocky Mountain Virtue Ethics Summit.) Paul called to say hello. He told me that the book I was just reading at that very moment had been awarded the Pulitzer Prize for general non-fiction. How cool! I’ve certainly enjoyed the book so far, although I’m not even 100 pages into it. It’s a clear, engaging, and compelling account of one of the horrors of the Soviet regime.

So congratulations to Anne Applebaum!
