Accordingly, the post I have chosen for our first field trip is crazy Brillo-head Yulia Latynina’s “Warning for Putin in Chavez’s Hospital Stay“, in which she…well, it’s best if you see for yourself. As usual, she opens her mouth, and the bullshit starts to flood out. She mocks and disses Cuban health care just as if she knows what she’s talking about, when in reality it is internationally recognized for its excellent standards, although Cuba is a very poor country. As usual, Latynina’s position is to leave readers wondering if perhaps Chavez might be alive today if only he had not chosen to go with Kommie Health Kare and went to one of those fancy American clinics, where doctors are naturally much smarter just by virtue of being American. Any American feeling down in the dumps, really, on any subject, would be well-advised to spend a half-hour talking with Latynina – she would blow so much sunshine up his ass that he would leave with the ability to fry eggs with the rays shooting out his eyes. Unbelievable.
Anyway, I left a comment there already this afternoon, and although The Moscow Times did not used to permit comments before, it does now. They have actually adopted an enviable format – I’m not quite sure how they do it – which allows the author of the comment only to edit it later if you discover you have made a spelling mistake, something like that. Nobody sees the “edit” command (at the bottom of the comment) except the original author, because obviously if it were available to all, people would alter each other’s comments. Anyway, take a look, see what you think, and if you feel like it, please leave a comment there. Of course you are free to comment here as well. Come on, bring your lunch, and let’s go. I hope you remembered to put on clean underwear; you never know when you might be hit by a bus.
