Now living in Lakeville, MN, Vodenka is co-author of a book on senior SS officer/violinist Reinhard Heydrich, Reichsprotektor of Bohemia and Moravia and lifelong anti-Communist.
On April 9, 2011, we again discussed the Cold War and where we are now since the Soviet Union has disbanded.

What’s Wrong? is the “not quite official” blog of the University of Colorado, Boulder’s Center for Values and Social Policy. The blog is edited by Colorado’s David Boonin, and its purpose is to provide “a forum for discussing and reporting on topics in applied normative philosophy, broadly understood to include applied ethics as well as practical subjects in social, political, and legal philosophy. It aims to publish original pieces and to bring attention to works posted elsewhere and is committed to representing a wide variety of subjects and points of view.” You can follow the blog on Facebook. Among other things, it will feature some of the arguments presented at this past weekend’s Rocky Mountain Ethics Congress.
