Synopsis:

Long Term Relationship, The Pandemic and Let's Not Repeat History

The two of us talked about having started our relationship 25 years ago on this date, and having gotten married 16 years ago.

We talked about the crisis of Russia trying to take over Ukraine and compared it to the Sudetenland crisis of 1938, when Great Britain and France caved in to Hitler's demands that a strategic portion of Czechoslovakia be given to the Third Reich. Appeasement didn't work out tell in 1938, it usually doesn't.

We noted that Vasily Arkhipov, the man who'd saved the world, would have turned 96 on January 30.

We talked about some people saying that the pandemic is slacking off, but the death rate from COVID~19 is higher this week than it was last week.

Vasily Arkhipov - We noted that the birthday of the man wo'd saved the world would happen on January 30.
