Glasnost (1987)


August 26, 1987

Dry Bones cartoon: Kirschen,  Soviet Union, Latvia, Estonia, Shuldig, glasnost, Russia, Media, Israel,
Today's cartoon is from 1987.
25 years ago this month!

Back then, the mighty Soviet Union was coming apart!! We were all watching and the media explained it all with a Russian word. It was used over and over again. The word was "glasnost". I don't believe I've ever heard it used again since then.

So are YOU old enough to remember glasnost?
