A day to celebrate
Today is the anniversary of Joseph Stalin's death on March 5, 1953. Well, OK, it is the anniversary of the day on which his death was announced since there are a few murky details around his death as there were around almost every part of his life. His funeral on March 8 was another bloody occasion as hundreds of people were crushed in a stampede caused, most likely by inefficiency and paranoid security.
One wonders whether the renewed President Putin remembers the date.
