From Bucharest with foreboding

Birchmore, Sue
September 1991
New Scientist;9/21/91, Vol. 131 Issue 1787, p53
The article reports on the Soviet Union's coup's impact on Romania. The coup in the Soviet Union has come and gone. While it lasted, life went on apparently normally here in Romania, but it was a bit like living next door to an erupting volcano-everyone keeping one eye on it, wondering how far the lava would spread. Analysts may have been worrying for months over the possibility of a hard-liners' coup against Russian President Michael Gorbachev, but people had really imagined the inertia of a political mass as large as the Soviet Union being moved so suddenly. The expatriates' reaction was mostly simple shock, and apprehension about what it may mean for Eastern Europe, but among at least some Romanians. The frustration came from those who had made a deliberate decision not to try to leave for greener pastures.
