Misguided perhaps, but still braver than me - she brought water and juice into the Dubrovka theater during that notorious incident.

I wouldn't have gone close to that place for all the money in the world.

I've never met her, but a mutual acquaintance transmitted a SCOTUS pen to her. At first she didn't want it, but after taking one look, she was: "Davai-davai!"

I'm not much for the British kiss-their-ass-and-win-their-minds-BS, but we could give the Russians some pointers on our version of a happy median.

Someone smarter than me said that the Russians, unfortunately, only have blunt instruments to use in their GWOT.

Good to see you back on here. Well, about the water and everything. At the risk of sounding cynical, a lot of opportunists were using that situation for their own fame -Iosef Kobzon also went into Dubrovka. Plus, the terrorists asked for her. She's known for being friendly to them. She also more than likely turned a case of food poisoning into "the FSB tried to poison me" case.

Sometimes a hatchet is more effective than a scalpel. Maybe this was one of those times.
