This could be quite funny ...

... if it were not so depressing. I am talking about Russia and that is always depressing. The Wall Street Journal reports that instead of investigating the murder (not to put too fine a point on it) of Sergey Magnitsky in Russian prison, "the prosecutor's office in Moscow recently announced the reopening of a tax evasion case against" the man, who has been dead for nearly two years. The Telegraph wrote about it a little while ago but it was the WSJ that reminded us all of Nikolay Gogol's great satirical novel, Dead Souls.
