BRUSSELS JOURNAL REPORTS:

Vladimir Bukovksy, the 63-year old former Soviet dissident, fears that the European Union is on its way to becoming another Soviet Union. In a speech he delivered in Brussels last week Mr Bukovsky called the EU a “monster” that must be destroyed, the sooner the better, before it develops into a fullfledged totalitarian state.

I doubt the E.U. will last long enough for that. I certainly hope that it straightens out, though.
