The Russians are Coming!

While our nation has been in shock over the Virginia Tech shootings the Russians announced they plan to build a tunnel to North America. I’m not making this up.
Plans were put forth this past Wednesday to dig a 60+ mile long tunnel under the Bering Strait to link Russia’s East Siberian Coast with Alaska.
The tunnel will be built in three segments linking with two islands in the strait.The planned undersea tunnel would contain a high-speed railway, highway and pipelines, as well as power and fiber-optic cables, according to TKM-World Link. Investors in the so-called public-private partnership include OAO Russian Railways, national utility OAO Unified Energy System and pipeline operator OAO Transneft, according to a press release which was handed out at the Wednesday media briefing and bore the companies' logos.Associated with this project will be 2 huge 10 gigawatt electric plants on the Siberian Coast which will rely on tidal activity to generate energy.
The cost of the tunnel is projected between $ 50 billion and $65 billion. The money will come from profits being made by the invested partners listed above who currently are awash with funds because of oil and gas revenues. It is expected to take 15 to 20 years to construct.Czar Nicholas II in 1904 announced plans to do such a project but talk ceased due to a war with Japan.

The Silly Season...

The silly season has started for leading Presidential candidates even though the real election is still 19 months away.
I overheard these two rumors/stories while eating breakfast this morning in a local restaurant:
Barack Obama has had his political operatives kidnap his white grandmother and stash her in a closet somewhere. Supposedly this is because the Senator from Illinois doesn’t want the black community to know that he is half white.
Judith Giuliani, Rudy’s third wife used to kill puppies for a living when she was married to her first husband. This is the real reason she didn’t want you to know about her first marriage.
Expect to hear similar nonsense as other candidates jockey for their respective parties’ nominations.
