Ed Snowden has entered Russia. It prompts memories of my travels to Russia. A colleague and I decided we'd like to go out into Moscow to check out the nightlife. One of the delegation's two interpreters offered to come along. The Washington Post's Pulitzer Prize winning reporter/editor David Hoffman then nonchalantly pointed out that this particular interpreter had a Chechen accent. We decided to walk to Red Square and the Kremlin on our own. - Brian A. Howey
