Alexander Litvinenko

I had followed the story of the ex-Russian spy who was poisoned a little bit, but not too much. I had seen his picture on the web, and I just sort of assumed that he was an older man. It was only until yesterday in the article I saw saying that he had died did I see a picture of him before.

By the way, the woman he's pictured with in the first picture is Anna Politkovskaya, a well-known Putin critic whose murder he was investigating.

I'm not really well versed in stories of Russians poisoning opposition, but this story reminded me of course of Viktor Yushenko, who was posioned with dioxin, while running for President in Ukraine in 2004.

About Me

My photo
Catholic and politically conservative, I graduated with a BA in History (concentration in American) and Political Science. I'm between two parishes; one in Wisconsin that is fairly traditional, and one in Illinois that is fairly liberal. I teach CCD. I work in the food service industry, which basically means I'm working in fast food until I find a better job. I'd like to work for the church somehow. Right now I'm working on getting my teaching certification, although I'm unsure thats the correct path for me. This blog is as random as I am. I hope you enjoy.
