I hope my worry-wart sister doesn't see this!

I just saw this story about the US sending military equipment to the Baltic States because of the possibility that Russian couldl become agressive toward them.

My sister sometimes worries about me when I travel. I have to email her frequently so that she knows I'm alive and in possession of my faculties. My Baltics trip isn't until June, so she has plenty of time to imagine the worst if she does indeed see this story.

The poor Baltic States have really had a hard time, having been under control of the Hanseatic League, the Teutonic Knights, Sweden, Poland, Russia and in modern times the Nazis and the Soviet Union. I've been told that the 3 countries together are about the size of Idaho. This comparison made me imagine Idaho being invaded by Washington State, Montana, Wyoming and British Columbia.
