Meanwhile in Russia

Anti-Putin Punk Rockers threaten to go on a hunger strike. Because if there's one thing Russian statists are afraid of, it's the prospect of people they dislike dying in their prisons.

Ah, Pussy Riot. Surely they will be remembered as one of Russia's greatest composers. Right alongside Rachmaninoff.

Yeah. Not that I'm cheering for Putin here, but the very idea of a hunger strike against Putin just seems weird and wrongheaded.

Granted, it would have some appeal among westerners. But 'the West wants to manipulate our government' is a constant refrain from Putin.
