Russyan Spring: 2017

    Well, it was bound to happen: an internet-organized show of protest against the Putin Regime.  This past weekend saw protests in major Russyan cities across the largest country in the world, from Kalinin on the Baltic Sea to Vladivostok on the Pacific Ocean more than 6000 miles to the east.
    It was organized in part by opposition leader Nalvalny who will oppose the Kremlin candidate in the next elections.  For his efforts he was jailed for 3 days and fined for disturbing good order.  Of course, this is a velvet glove rebuke  by Kremlinistas who don't want any additional world scrutiny of its oppression of the masses than already is widely known about the world.
