SOVIET CHIC AT TARGET ?

Radley Balko is angry at Target stores because they stock “…the ‘Men’s Roma Atletica Black CCCP Crew Tee’ and the ‘Men’s Roma Atletica Hot Red Mockba Crew Tee,’ which feature the Soviet hammer and sickle.” So he wrote the CEO a letter asking them not to sell it. “It’s important that we remember the ruthlessness, brutality, and threat to our own liberty wrought by Soviet-style communism,” he argues. “It’s difficult to find anything trendy or fashionable about … the suppression of human potential forced upon billions of people.” Amen? Or overreaction? I’m inclined to Amen.
