An all-female rock band from Russia, in a Moscow cathedral, played a protest song about Vladimir Putinís ties to the church. Putinís henchmen tracked them down and threw them in prison. They were charged with hooliganism. Is that a crime? Thatís like being charged with tomfoolery. Or shenanigans. If you donít agree with Putin, you get sent to a gulag. Maybe they shouldíve sung it ironically, sung about the fact that Putin got elected with 140 percent of the vote.
