    I saw a good movie recently (rented from Blockbuster). I Am David is a story about a boy who escapes alone from a prison camp in Bulgaria during the Cold War and makes his way across a good portion of western Europe while trusting nobody due to his experiences in the camp.

    I don't know why people would want to escape from a worker's paradise, but, hey, there it is. When he digs under the barbed wire at the Greek border, I remarked to my wife what a pity it was that communist countries had to put up so many barriers to all those people trying to get in, fleeing from capitalist oppression to the worker's paradise. :lol:

    Anyway, it is well worth the cost of a rental, something that is becoming rare these days.
