I categorically deny I spend all my free time at Sputnik

This post was a joke I dashed off about six months ago that I forgot to publish. As you can see I eventually got tired of doing links to the Sputnik reports I'd grabbed. But now the headlines make an interesting trip down memory lane. And the photo of Medvedev with four-footed companion is still priceless. 

I have one dispute with the editor of the great "Paradise Lost" photographs Sputnik pulled together: Syria wasn't paradise before the war started. But I suppose one could say that in relation to today the era shown in the photos was indeed paradise. Certainly many Syrians would see it that way.
