We had a lot of family and friends in Kabul.  And the communist coup, as opposed to the coup that happened in ’73, was actually very violent.  A lot of people rounded up and executed, a lot of people were imprisoned.  Virtually anybody that was affiliated or associated with the previous regime or the royal family was persecuted, imprisoned, killed, rounded up, or disappeared.  And so we would hear news of friends and acquaintances and occasionally family members to whom that had happened, that were either in prison or worse, had just disappeared and nobody knew where they were, and some of them never turned up.  My wife’s uncle was a very famous singer and composer in Kabul who had been quite vocal about his dislike for the communists and so on and he disappeared.  And to this day, we have no idea what happened to him.  So that sort of thing, we began to hear news over in Europe of mass executions and really just horror stories.  So it was surreal, and it also really kind of hit home in a very real way.
