WNU Editor: My father never liked Zbigniew Brzezinski .... there was something about the former national security adviser that always rubbed my father the wrong way .... especially on east-west issues.

From my vantage point I see this as two Cold War warriors from different sides passing away .... and like the era itself .... the door slowly closing and waiting for the few who are left .... Henry Kissinger, Jimmy Carter, Mikhail Gorbachev, etc .... to also pass on.
