History Repeats Itself

It wasn't long ago that the captain of the Soviet Submarine, Scorpion, stood at this map table with his own Ushanka hat.

Today, the Scorpion is a tourist attraction in the Cold War victor's port, Long Beach California. (No, California didn't win the Cold War, it was just along for the ride... It's former governor, however... And no, we don't mean Gray Davis...).

Today, a new breed of Ushanka-wearing comrades stand at the table. Liberty! Capitalism! Full steam ahead!
