Bringing the worst news...

Yesterday I've watched a TV program dedicated to people whose job is bring the families the worst possible news.
Imagine that you have to knock on the door, to tell a mom that her son was killed.
Or to tell 5-6 y.o. kids that the father wouldn't come home anymore.
Would you be able to do that?

By the way, as far as I know, Israel is the only country in the world, where families get to knw about the disaster in a such humane manner. Anywhere else, it is done by phone call, at best, or by standard official letter delivered by mail, at the worst.

Boris Berezovsky decided to piss off Kremlin

In his interview to the Guardian, Berezovsky has claimed to bankroll a coup against Putin.

I don't really understand, what did he try to achieve with this interview, since it only helps to the Kremlin gang to portray him as an ultimate criminal besides Mikhail Hodorkovsky. Actually Kremlin didn't really needed his help anyway since they were doing just fine even beforehand.

Like blaming the assassination of Alexander Litvinenko on him. One of the theories is that Litvinenko was assassinated in order to undermine Berezovsky's refugee status in the UK.

Short vacation

I'm going for a short vacation for 3 days. Long time since I had any. Perhaps I'll do some mobile blogging on the road.
