Iosef Kobzon pisses me off. He's been on my personal death list since he destroyed Bernes' Lyubimiy Gorod on Victory Day '02. Of course, Alla Pugacheva did her Dubrovka stunt, too, but we won't dis her. We may end up having to duel ;-)
Novaya Gazeta's interesting, especially for a lot of the Nord-Ost lawsuit material that few of the other periodicals cover.
I look at 'Novaya' and Politskovskaya as evidence that Russia's not as far gone as that world-reknowned Russian expert Condi seems to think. They're still open for business, so that says a lot.
Sometimes I wonder if Strobe Talbot got a sex change.
Kobzon - he's had more farewell concerts than Cher!
