Plus ca change...

The more things change, the more they stay the same, especially in Putinland...the Russian capital has multiple hundreds of gazillionaires, the highest per capita percentage of unaffordable automobiles, the greatest number of VIP rooms(admittedly in incomprehensible venues, like internet cafes), approximately one hundred thousand five-star hotels. All this is true, but some things never change, namely the cold showers everyone still has to take throughout the month of August.

Should people be complaining about the bbc dispensing "foreign propaganda," bemoaning the expansion of NATO and wargaming with China when they still can't quite manage hot water in a world capital l2 months out of l2?

No more G-8 summits, no more photo ops with world leaders, no more appearances before the cameras before this antediluvian outrage is remedied. How about some hot water sanctions?!
