The Week contest: Lonely Russian
This week's question: With U.S.-Russia tensions at a high, the Russian ambassador to the U.S. has complained that no one in Washington — including House majority and minority leaders and Vice President Mike Pence — is willing to meet and talk with him. If Ambassador Anatoly Antonov were to write a memoir about his lonely life in D.C., what title could he give it?
