PROPAGANDA-PALOOZA ... A stash of Soviet-era political posters from Stanford's Hoover Institution has traveled to Chicago to be part of an exhibition called "Windows on the War: Soviet TASS Posters at Home and Abroad, 1941-1945." (TASS was the Soviet news and propaganda agency.) The show at the Art Institute of Chicago is up through Oct. 23. "It's the first time we've ever sent originals off campus," Richard Sousa, director of Hoover's library and archives, said in a press release.
