So continues the return to dictatorship in Russia

Kasparov Jailed After Anti-Putin Protest – AOL News

Perhaps most troubling and sad about the whole thing is this is what the Russian people want. All they see is the illusion of being instantly powerful and respected when in actuality they will be despised, mocked and feared by current democratic russophiles, anti-Communist groups, and former Soviet states in turn for their foolish, ignorant choices.

I wish I could say I was surprised by the events in Russia, but I am not. I half expect Putin to rename St. Petersburg (again!) in true Soviet communist grand style.
