The Dog Ate Putin's Homework

Two deaths already and no doubt more to come should make everything related to the Boris Nemstov murder tragic. And so they do.

On the other hand, the Kremlin's shucking and jiving are utterly fascinating to watch.

 A show of hands, please.

- Who was surprised that Mr. Putin took personal charge of the investigation, thus guaranteeing that -- (fill in the blanks here)?

- Who was surprised that the murderers who were fingered were low-grade Chechen criminals?

- Who was surprised to see one of them blown up and the other teetering on the edge of nothingness, soon to also fall?

Do I see no hands at all? Good!

And a poll: will the second 'killer'
1. Poison himself through some never-explained means
2, Hang himself in his cell, probably with his own socks
3. Suffer a fatal heart attack
4. Sort of vanish, forever
