Re: Red Square

Not all Corner readers find communist chic distressing. One writes of the Red Square restaurant in Las Vegas:

I actually approve of the Stalinist-chic decor — not because I’m a closet Bolshie, but because using Bolshie iconography is a way of reminding oneself that the good guys won the Cold War. It’s like using their dead as a trophy; Achilles dragging the corpse of Patroclus around Troy.
