As we were editing this issue, Vermont, where our publishing office is located, was hit with a bitter cold spell. Overnight, temperatures dropped into the -20° to -30° F range for about a week.
It was a timely taste of what life is like in Norilsk (page 50), where temperatures do not get above this level for months. But of course, the air here is much cleaner and Vermont does not have a dark history of gulag slave labor camps.
