Mother Russia

Jay Leno was a blight on American television. The bar is set low for Mr Fallon.

Mr Leno played the role of Brutus to both Letterman and Conan.

Nada is the face of Pussy Riot whether the other women like it or not.

The opening ceremony at Sochi was brilliant. However, NBC’s coverage was marred by historical nonsense from David Remnick.

Mr Remnick did provide one laugh out loud moment: “Russia was isolated from the Enlightenment.”

The New York Times criticized the opening ceremony for whitewashing the terrible Soviet times. In contrast, I recall that US Olympic opening ceremonies in Los Angeles and Atlanta paid tribute to slavery, southern segregation, Indian Removal, etc.

When does the competition in mass arrests begin?
