By now you have heard that Jeffrey Goldberg interviewed Fidel Castro for The Atlantic, an article in which Castro said that socialism does not work, and Irans Ahmadî-Nezhâd was a major threat to the security of the world.
So in 30 years, when some youngster asks what life was like in 2010, the Czar might pause and say, Well, things were so upside-down that a communist dictator made more sense and had a better grip on reality than our own President.
Божію Поспѣшествующею Милостію Мы, Дима Грозный Императоръ и Самодержецъ Всероссiйскiй, цѣсарь Московскiй. The Czar was born in the steppes of Russia in 1267, and was cheated out of total control of all Russia upon the death of Boris Mikhailovich, who replaced Alexander Yaroslav Nevsky in 1263. However, in 1283, our Czar was passed over due to a clerical error and the rule of all Russia went to his second cousin Daniil (Даниил Александрович), whom Czar still resents. As a half-hearted apology, the Czar was awarded control over Muscovy, inconveniently located 5,000 miles away just outside Chicago. He now spends his time seething about this and writing about other stuff that bothers him.
