    This guy apparently is having trouble tearing himself away from the job.

  2. Reporters are brave, in some places.

    That's what I have to say.

    Good luck to Mr. Kanev and people like him in places like his.

    'Course, now, anybody who offs him knows to grab his bag with the 2 cameras in it. A reporter should know better than to give out vital pieces of intel such as that.

    But good luck to a reporter who is fighting the good fight.

    I've posted about her on this site before, but Anna Politkovskaya was presumably killed for crossing the wrong people in Russia earlier this decade. Her book, a Russian Diary, is phenomenal and highly suggested.

  5. I saw a documentary on her last year. It wasn't a very well-made film, but what a woman.

    You should definitely pick up the book if you haven't. Or, if you want, pm me and I can mail it along to you.
