“I was able to get a sense of his soul”

So said our president about Russia’s dictator. I use the term advisedlyBushputinmeeting

Russian journalist Anna Politkovskaya, an outspoken critic of President Vladimir Putin, was shot dead on Saturday at her apartment block in central Moscow, police said.

"According to initial information she was killed by two shots when leaving the lift. Neighbors found her body," a police source told Reuters. Police found a pistol and four rounds in the lift.

Politkovskaya, a 48-year-old mother of two, won international fame and numerous prizes for her dogged pursuit of rights abuses by Putin’s government, particularly in the violent southern province of Chechnya.

"The first thing that comes to mind is that Anna was killed for her professional activities. We don’t see any other motive for this terrible crime," said Vitaly Yaroshevsky, a deputy editor of the newspaper where Politkovskaya worked.

The Evil Empire collapses … again

The Yankees were eliminated from the playoffs today, and I feel fine. Now if only the Dodgers can bounce back against the Mets tonight. Outside of the Braves winning, nothing gives me greater pleasure than seeing the overpriced and overhyped New York teams lose. Especially the squad in pinstripes.

Coming soon: my uber-trivial all-hottie baseball postseason team. (Hint: Barry Zito’s on the mound. Derek Jeter might’ve been the SS, but THE YANKEES LOST.)

Did I mention the Yankees lost?
