I am always saddened when Poles write to me and tell me that my book "Bieganski the Brute Polak Stereotype" is a big waste of time because, as Poland becomes more wealthy, the stereotype of the Polish brute will die out.
The stereotype will never die out; if you read the book you will know why.
In any case, Bieganski is very much alive in yesterday's New York Times, and certainly in the reader comments on this article.
