Picture of the Day
In Moscow, tens of thousands of courageous Russians demonstrated today in opposition to the Russian occupation of Crimea and its aggressive position toward Ukraine. Tomorrow, people in Crimea will hold an illegal "referendum" that is expected to give Russia an excuse to steal it from Ukraine. The demonstrations will have no impact on Russia's mini-czar, former KGB colonel Vladimir Putin, who is flouting international sanctions and who seems delusional after the Sochi Winter Olympics that he's the "Emperor of the World."
