    1. Learn Russian. Knowing a foreign language frees your mind up in many ways. Not the least is the ability to read a foreign newspaper or understand a foreign broadcast.

    1. Like the old Russian joke says: "There is no Novosti in Pravda and no Pravda in Novosti."

      Novosti = News
      Pravda = Truth

      I find it sad that Russian media today is more informative that US media. I think 'Russia Today' did more interviews with Ron Paul during the 08 election than the rest of the American MSM combined. They were a lot more respectful to him than the US media counter-parts.
