Like most Americans, I found myself asking how I missed hearing about the exploits of the intrepid former Soviet national Gypsy Taub (photo right), who left her native Russia in 1986 to become an American.
In 2004, Taub's belief that post-9/11 America too closely resembled the Soviet police state she had left convinced the mother of three to pursue a series of disruptive acts of public disobedience.
