Addendum to the Anna Politkovskaya post


(1) Anna was murdered on Saturday, Oct. 7th. 

(2) She was a very vocal critic of President Vladimir Putin. 

(3) As a friend reminded me this morning, Oct. 7th was President Putin's birthday.

Perhaps we're looking at one answer to that age-old question:  So what do you give the man who has everything?

That seems too coincidental doesn't it?

By the way what is the name of the book that you had sent to jenni_snake? I remember reading something about Anna Politkovskaya about a year and a half ago, and now would like to know more.

The book is Putin's Russia: Life in a Failing Democracy.

And you might be interested in reading what dominiquelechic had to say to my original post: http://aswanargent.livejournal.com/96632.html

*headdesk* And for two reasons: 1) the birthday 'gift', and 2) the fact that I forgot Vladès birthday... :-§
