Another Take On Commie Kitsch


A reader replies:

Hello Mr. Clegg:

In a recent corner post you complain about kids in Che shirts, hammer &
sickle shirts, etc. With young kids (20-ish) this is merely the age old
wish of a young person to offend the old. However, I’m a musician & part
of my stage gear is a 25+ year old black leather jacket with dozens of
pins I’ve collected over the years. I have Red Army pins, Soviet Rocket
Forces insignia, etc.

They’re like scalps.

Best Wishes,


Fort Wayne, Indiana
