For wont of something profound to say on the first day of the year...

I'll give you a link to a story about an increase in price of the cheapest Russian vodka:

The government there wants to cut down on drinking, apparently only in the lower economic classes. There's now a minimum price, which I assume won't have any impact on people with money.

Happy New Year to all our Russian friends with enough money to celebrate.

Damned governments and their interfering ways! Sheesh! Now the poor can't even get tipsy and booze away those poverty issues, can they? Unless maybe beer is reasonably priced, then maybe they can, as it is often said, cry in their beer. (Something I've done on many occasions!)
