To the Editors:
Am I the umpteenth reader to point out that the Ulyanov home was in Simbirsk, not Samara? (RL, May/June, p. 14) Less forgivable is the error of omission in the “Berlin Blockade” chronicle (pp. 22-25), the failure to point out that “cosmopolitans” and “cosmopolitanism” were widely understood at the time to be coded references to Jews.
Otherwise, good issue, especially when Putinovshchina is the subject, as in the Editorial and elsewhere.
