New US Ambassador to Estonia

The US Senate appointed Michael C. Polt as the new US Ambassador to Estonia last Friday. Polt is a career diplomat whose last post was Serbia, and he is known widely in Europe for the aggressive game of Buzkashi he plays. A spokesman for Polt said he was unsure whether Buzkashi was played in Estonia, "but surely," he noted, "the Estonians ride around on horseback and fire Kalashnikovs in the air like other post-Soviet peoples. Or is that the Latvians that do that?" The spokesman noted Mr. Polt has adapted well in all his assignments.
