    Anatoly Korolyov writes an interesting article to make one think.

    You think so? I thought it was pretty bland. A fairly meaningless premise backed up by exaggerated generalisations to reach a fairly empty conclusion. Nothing realy objectionable, but not very interesting either.

    I thought it explains everything perfectly.

    At a press conference on the second day of the school siege, Dr. Leonid Roshal, who achieved fame during the Moscow theater hostage crisis, said that he spoke by telephone to the gang's spokesman, who described himself as a "highlander."
    No wonder they killed all those people in the school: there can be only one.
