OUT OF THE MOUTHS OF BABES: We have one of those Russian matryoshka (nesting) dolls depicting Russian leaders from Tsar Nicholas through Boris Yeltsin, which our son loves playing with. Boris, the largest doll, got dropped and cracked at some point, but the rest of the dolls are fair game for toddler play. We've taught him to say that Stalin "was a wicked man" because "he killed lots of people." But he's learned even more than we realized: yesterday, he came up to me and said, "Mama, Boris Yeltsin is a broken man."
