    Well, what’s his Flickr handle?? Seeing things like this really does make you regard a politician, or anybody in power, in a different light. It humanizes them, I think.

    Here I was all ready with some KGB jokes, but wow, the vid is interesting, and the comments are thoughtful and insightful, and even make the guy come across as somewhat of an interesting and nice guy. Cool.
