Links de jour

Proof that one can sell anything, even nothing. It's not on my holiday wish list, thank you very much. Of course, George Dubya isn't on my list either and we may yet end up with him as first paperweight. My gals were excited when they saw this comic parody of Curious George. They realized it wasn't "their George" from the first panel though. "Drinking from a glass?"

There's an interesting discussion of the difficulties that Russia is facing (declining population, AIDS crisis, brain drain, alcoholism, declining lifespan, quality of life, etc.) on Plastic which is typically a good read. The discussion comes out of a recent New Yorker article "The Devestation." A sad business all around. There are some links in the articles to the grim business of Russian Mail-Order Brides as well.
