Vladimir Putin There's a new Russian topping for pasta called Vladimir Putinesca sauce. It makes you power hungry and capable of producing only a thin, forced smile. ... It was easy to tell that Russian president Vladimir Putin was ecstatic when a 17-year old became the first Russian female to win a gold medal in Olympic figure skating. His smile broadened by a full quarter inch. ... I'm sure Putin is out to embarrass the West by the harassment of the most famous Russian rock band. His actions ensure that Western media continue to have to use the words Pussy Riot in headlines.

... The nice thing about working from home is I can look at my window at the snow and ice and think, "It's not that bad out". However, the weather has gotten so bad I saw birds trying to drown themselves in a frozen bird bath.... It's sobering to think we are always at the hands of forces far stronger than we know and that we have no hope of controlling.. Fate, God? No the airlines. ... The combination of fried food and fat I've been having while home in Indiana is not so much comfort food as curl-yourself-into-a-fetal position food. ... Many have followed the news DirectTV booted the Weather Channel from its service offerings. I think the new one is a bit cut rate. The Doppler radar is some guy running waving his arms in a circle and shouting "blip" periodically." ... I think I recognize many of the competitors in the various Olympic snowboarding competitions. They're the young drivers that scare us to death when they're on the road.
