Culture or Science, Whatever!

Many anecdotes even today tell about the not so bright Soviet politician Leonid Brezhnev (1906-1982), President of the Soviet Union and Secretary General of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of that country.

Leonid’s political speeches, that he as the president had a chance to keep, were, in fact, often, very long. Sometimes they lasted for six hours since Brezhnev read the original, and the copy of the speech that they gave him every time before he climbed on the podium!

On one occasion, Leonid Brezhnev visited the south part of the country where he was supposed to speak about science. But, his adviser mistakenly gave him the speech about culture.

Leonid began to read...

Peroration lasted, and he did not even notice what he is actually speaking.

Others have noticed, but they did not dare to say anything
