“Must make perforce a universal prey
And last eat up himself.”  – Troilus and Cressida

What is Putin doing?  He seems to want to take over the Crimean Peninsula.  Isn’t Russia a large enough country for him to run?  Doesn’t he have enough on his hands with internal dissent, a poor economy, and the remains of the Olympics to deal with (what is going to happen to Sochi now?)  I would imagine antics and overreach like this would eventually ruin him, but the arc of history is long, and it appears at times to swerve in distressing directions.

P.S. Happy March.  Who’s loving this latest snowstorm we’re having?
