What is a sound U.S. policy toward Russia? I started to think about this 25 years ago when, in October 1988, I received an invitation from Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev's science adviser, Yuri Ossipyan, to visit Moscow.
The Norwegian Nobel Committee will announce this year's winner of the Nobel Peace Prize on Friday.

A spokesman for the former Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev said he cannot attend the former Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher's funeral because of poor health.

A new Pew Research Center survey heralds this headline: "For the first time in more than four decades of polling on the issue, a majority of Americans favor legalizing the use of marijuana.

Twenty-five years ago, President Reagan stood at the Brandenburg Gate and challenged Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev to "tear down this wall."

He didn't need to point out the differences between communism and democracy -- the backdrop spoke for itself.
