Jul 4th 2009 10:09PM These people are Russians. He made off with scads of state assets at firesale prices with backdoor credit back in the Yeltsin days. He is not a self made man, but someone who got access and favors through Tatanija Yeltsin (daughter, who also made guys like Roman Abrahamovic billionaires at age 33). This guy's "Wife" didn't have two nickles to rub together when she hooked up with him, and now acting all shocked that he's doing what Russian oligarchs do is silly. She's just looking to make off with as much as possible so she can go bang the pool boy in Monaco. That whole scene with those lowlifes is a barbarian soap opera. IRS should seize the place for kicks.

Aug 2nd 2007 3:31PM It's not going to matter, really, who fields what...hybrid, diesel, tank engines, whatever. With a 50% export shortfall looming from producing nations, it's not going to matter what your hybrid gets for milage, automotive gasoline for non-critical transportation sectors is going to be priced beyond the reach of the average citizen...if he can get a ration card. And so long as they refuse to come up off hydrogen produced onboard, as you drive, in favor of trying to keep everyone chained like a slave to a pump, that option isn't going to cut it either.
Jun 7th 2007 5:45PM Perhaps he'd prefer Baghdad? (where I currently am) But really, it was all in fun and he was still smiling through it all, so it wasn't that bad a day. (and, he just got worldwide exposure...)
Aug 1st 2006 8:44PM Well, you could have been a war correspondent like me! Dreadful boredome punctuated by blinding periods of sheer terror.
On the flip side...it's probably a good discussion to be having as many people get into things when they really didn't know what it entailed (see above!).
