To the Editors:
Just a short note about “A Tale of Two Bottles,” by Paul Richardson [Editor Notes], in the last issue of your magazine (which I enjoy so much). As far as I remember, in 1982 (I was only an 11-year-old kid in Kiev, Ukraine then) you could not purchase vodka or any other strong drink before 11 am. Later, Gorbachev pushed the no-vodka clock till to 2 pm. So my guess you were trying to buy vodka in the morning.
