Here's something on the lighter side to chew on for the weekend. Apparently the old Red Army Choir (yes, that would be the official choir of the old Soviet armed forces, now I suppose the Russian Army) recently performed with a Finnish rock band called the Leningrad Cowboys. The song? Sweet Home Alabama.
As Yogi Berra once said (speaking of the election of a Jewish mayor of Dublin, Ireland): Only in America. (Hat tip to Jack for flagging this for me.)
