Quote Of The Day -- Limited Choices

People either die or they leave.” -- Funeral home manager Yulia Balandina from Gorokhovets, five hours drive from Moscow.  Ms. Balandina was referring to the reality in her town, but implicitly to the downward demographic spiral in Vladimir Putin's Russia, brought on by a drop in birth rates, a weak economy, and the coronavirus pandemic.
