Few Books, Lots of Booze for Rural Teens

Try playing the $125/mo English teacher in rural Ukraine.

No castles, no showers, no bidets. No textbooks either.

Well, here’s the consolation prize: booze.

Some bright kids go for the books.

Others don’t. What a great supply of labor migrants for energy-rich Russia and englightened Europe.

The same Europe that pays less for Russia’s gas and values some of Ukraine’s elites so much. Talk about European values.

Luckily, those 45 Ukrainians on board the Costa Concordia have survived. Will the captain apply for asylum? In Russia or Mezhyhirya maybe?

Meanwhile, Tymoshenko’s tigress is expecting. Some French guy did this.

No, he’s not in the government and hasn’t picked up his Légion d'honneur yet:)

Is This Tymoshenko’s Suite, Er, Cell?

Liberté, égalité, bidet!

Not quite as cool as her Koncha-Zaspa place or Yanukovych’s Mezhyhirya principality, huh?

Still pretty upscale by Ukrainian standards.

I mean, if we’re talking about Ukrainians who voted for Tymoshenko only to lose their jobs, homes and savings. They didn’t realize she’d be funneling billions of tax hryvnias into banks, signing scorched earth gas deals and vacationing bigtime.

And when they did, many of them chose not to vote for her again. Game over.

Sure King Yanukovych is making a show of this super-EU-style cell. No mistake about it.

But every time I hear the word torture applied to Queen Tymoshenko, I can’t help crying like North Korea.
