Whups, I did it again. Back in high school, I translated the phrase before I learned any other Russian, and came up with слушь when looking up "land" in the dictionary. AFAICT, it actually means "listen", and I have no idea how I got those wires crossed. The word in the slogan should be земля /z^jeml^ja/. -- Mark J. Reed <markjreed@...>
