NOTE: Over on Publius Pundit, we dismantle yet another lame piece of pseudo journalism about Russia from the New York Times, this one falsely claiming Russians are rich and traveling all over the world.

NOTE: Russia's run of freakish dumb luck in sports recently continues. On the brink of elimination from the Euro championships in soccer after being humiliated by Spain, Russia managed to squeak past Greece because of a freak play in which the Greek goalie simply walked away from his post and let the Russians score. The Russian side has been out-scored two-to-one in its two matches to date, and even with this "victory" must beat Sweden or be eliminated in the first round.
