Take a Lesson from the Russkies, George.

(Story about terrorist's capturing a school) Moscow (AP) President Vladimir Putin interrupted his working holiday in the Black Sea resort of Sochi and returned to Moscow. On arrival at the airport, he held an immediate meeting with the heads of Russia's Interior Ministry and Federal Security Service, the Interfax news agency said.

So let me get this straight: when something really bad happens in your country (like a major terrorist attack) the President is supposed to stop what he's doing and meet with his top cabinet members and security people to assess the problem? What a novel idea!

Why does Putin have to return to Moscow to deal with terrorist problems?

Because the internal communications of the Russian Govt. Offices are so poor that he has to hang up and redial everytime he wants to change who he is talking to.

Besides, the long distance charges that would result from phone calls originating in Sochi would further bankrupt the already bankrupt pro-democracy/capitalist govt.

And dont forget the surcharge (aka TAX) he would have to pay to Ms. Heinz for every dollar spent. You didn't really believe that the Pickle Queen really made her money from honest work, did you? I think she is in cohoots with the French.
