R.I.P. Boris Yeltsin
Basically, you did your best. You didn't help much, and you only left the country vulnerable to a new emerging anti-Democratic Dic (tator) who was short but deadly, Putin, but at least you tried. It's a lot more than anyone else in Russia had done for 80+ years.
So a toast to Boris! May your God and your liver forgive you, wherever you may be.

I know it's off-topic but did you see the story about the Blue Angel who crashed? They were supposed to come to Offutt in early May but I don't think they'll make it.
I've missed Boris Yeltsin since he's been out of the public eye. Seriously. His episode getting drunk and trying to direct that band at a speech was perfect. It made my day.10:30 PM
I almost forgot about Yeltsin, drunk on stage, doing the twist with that pop band and those lady dancers.
Those were the good old days.
