Topic - Peter Savodnik
In a recent New Republic article titled "Moscow Is No Place for a Defector," Peter Savodnik mentions what he believes to be Lee Harvey Oswald's primary motivation for defecting to the Soviet Union — not politics, not money, not women: he just "really wanted to get away from his mother."
