a compendium of musings and rants from Alison Beightol, who is old enough to know better.
You are going to freak out! A buddy of mine that graduated with me from Univ. of Texas is working in Russia. He is a petroleum engineer. He was at a dinner last week with some big entrepreneurs in Russia and Putin was there! He actually talked to him for a couple of minutes. Seems that the company he is working for is run by some good friends of Putin. I told him about you and asked if he ever meets Vlad again to get his pic and have him sign it.
HOLY CRAP! I would have peed in my pants. Right away I would have been terrified that he would some how KNOW about Vladurday and have me marked for death ala Darth Vader or Dick Cheney. But how cool is that? Friends of Putin. Friends or Else, huh?
