    one thing is for sure. Russia should end the moratorium on the death sentence. i am well aware that it is no deterrent to crime or criminals. one can see that in every country that has the death sentence still enforced. but some scum has no right to live after what they had done. and while it can not bring back the victims it will give the dependents some satisfaction that that scum will never do anything. and, since most of these people are young, saves the government a lot of money to fee and house them. WORK the can not do, because most of them are in solitary confinement. so, why keep them alive? and no, i am not for the - someone strikes your left cheek, offer also the right one -. for me it is more -an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth.- even if this proverb is being used and quoted wrong and in a wrong context. to me it is just fine.

    I clicked for the table and it is pretty impressive.

    Also, it's pretty neat how not a single person has a glass of water.

    "MOSCOW — When President Vladimir Putin threw open the gates for Russians to propose changes to the country's constitution, the rewrite frenzy was on — particularly among nationalists, social conservatives, chauvinists and militants, who all dream of a Russia even more strident and militaristic."

    That's just the first sentence from Jeff Bezos' compost. Not too much bias, yes?
