It’s a wonder they haven’t undertaken this a long time ago.

Possibly due to the honkin’ big country across the border.

Which side? :slight_smile:

Currently the one I think they are most concerned about is to the east.

I think Vladimir worries them more than Angela.

Edit: Keep forgetting that Poland no longer shares a border with Russia/USSR with the exception of Kalinin Oblast. :doh2:

sigh I graduated high school in 1981. The maps of Europe that come immediately to mind when I think about them are from my Hammond Headline 1979 edition, and had far fewer countries in it.

When I was there in 2007, citizens were still coming to grips with the new world in which they found themselves. It’s a country with some mighty big identity issues. It’s also a country in which one might find a semi-truck and a horse-drawn cart side by side in a major city. I’m somewhat doubtful that change of any sort happens quickly there.
