Odessa and The Blitz

I’m reading “Full Dark House” by Christopher Fowler, an uncommonly talented and humorous detective writer whose protagonists are Arthur Bryant and John May, who couldn’t be more different and more complementary. Bryant is sloppy to a fault; May dapper without trying.

Bucha: Liberating them from what?

The name is so close to Busha , which is so close to about every Slavic word for Gramma. Gramma, whose teared-images in Ukraine have ripped us apart.

A Russian soldier approached a Ukrainian and said “We are liberating you!”

The Ukrainian said, “From what?” 

What makes evil? Wrong question. Always existed.
