Borneman - Chapter 04
One day, to discover what people really thought of him, the Romanian
dictator Nicolae Ceausescu disguised himself as a poor peasant to
travel among the masses. At the Bucharest train station he asked an old
man his opinion of Ceausescu. The old man looked to make sure no one
was listening. Then he beckoned the disguised CeausÂ¸ escu to follow as
he led him through labyrinthine twists and turns on Bucharest streets.
Arriving at a place far "off the beaten path," and again after making
absolutely sure they were alone, the old man whispered in Ceausescu's
ear, "I like him!"
