Talkin About A Revolution *

"Some commentators fear a revolution as more and more Russians turn to violence on discovering ..." Click on the link to find out what is brewing (or not, ha ha) in Russia.

Well, this looks interesting - and also interesting is that the possibility of a revolution gets put in the "quirkies" section of the Press Association's web site, weird or what?

In thinking back to earlier days when gallons of Schmirnofs were emptied every weekend and seeing the ultimate human misery resulting from this, I cannot be more pleased by this action. The russians are finally "getting it".

Ren, what a bombshell of an article - a hundred thousand thanks for bringing it to my attention. It makes for some excellent reading.

And, no, sonia certainly did not attempt a reconciliation. But I'll certainly debate with her using more temperate language in future.

roman, thanks for your remarks, but in saying the Russians are "getting it", do you mean you welcome the action being taken to overcome their alcohol abuse problem or the fact that they are about to take to the streets as the shelves are emptying? If it's the former, then I think I would have something to say if my own government took such steps to deal with such a problem. If the latter, social movements which topple governments have come from strager sources I suppose.
