NOTE:  LR founder and publisher Kim Zigfeld has a new column out on the American Thinker blog, where she focuses on Putin’s stunning liquidation of the Russian Central Bank’s independence, declaring interests rates as if he were the nation’s central banker.  Is he panicking over the tanking economy or signaling that he is the new Stalin? You decide.

NOTE:  Kim also, for the first time, has a simultaneous column running on the Pajamas Media blog, where her latest installment  exposes some egregiously flawed reporting by the New York Times regarding Moldova and criticizes the papers shockingly non-responsive attitude when we challenged its reporting about Lev Ponomarev. Little wonder that the paper is teetering on the verge of bankruptcy with this kind of insular arrogance seems to be its modus operandi.

NOTE:  The BBC has a video report from the Russian breadlines.
