Blood Brothers: Putin & Mugabe

Joe Nocera's opinion piece in today's NYT had a great sub-heading: "What Putin & Pals want, Putin & Pals get".  This observation is in regard to the trial, and today's conviction, of Mikhail B. Khodorkovsky and Platon L. Lebedev. 

Also in today's NYT is a review of Peter Godwin's new book The Fear : Robert Mugabe and the Martyrdom of Zimbabwe.  Peter Godwin is a journalist who has two previous memoirs on his life in Zimbabwe:  A White Boy in Africa and When a Crocodile Eats the Sun...both excellent.  This newest book is another indictment of Mugabe.  He really has to go.
