  1. Duke Ellington and Michael Jackson ——–

    Michael Jackson, Dead At 50, Was Hugely Popular Across Former Soviet Bloc


    Superb touch, Mr. Krastev! Unlike the other article by some obscure music critic who seems not to be understanding anything about where this gloriuous radio station broadcasts to, your words strik e a chord with all those in eastern Europe who were escaping into Michael Jackson’s music and video appearance (yes, we did have VHS video players in the 1980s, even though they would cost as much as a car, and the tapes from the west had a way of pouring in, defying the censorship) from the crude day to day Communist reality.

  2. Vladimir Putin: Did Mr Deripaska sign the document? I do not see your signature. Come over here. Sign it. The document is over here.

    This scene is somewhere on YouTube and had to be one of the most jaw dropping captured moments of Putin playing thugster Czar.


    There was an identical exchange with Mr. K just before they sent him to Siberia.
    He’s such a crude clown.
