Recounting Georgia, someone said?

TBH, I’m not sure what’s going on there. It’s easy to dismiss Ivanishvili based on my prejudice against anyone having more money than its good for anyone. But I have lost track of Georgian domestic politics about the time of the Russian-Georgian war, so I might be wrong.

One thing I know for sure: this will have fallout. Georgia is of great strategic importance. The US know. The CIS know. Russia knows. Turkey knows. Iran knows. So do Armenia and Azerbaijan, and everyone else in the region. This could affect global politics, mark my words.

From the article:

Miami Seaquarium curator Chris Plante said in a written statementthat the whale’s longevity is a testament to the “excellent care” she receives daily from animal training and veterinary care staff over five decades.

“She is a remarkable animal and we are devoted to her,” Plante said.

“Instead of focusing on a perilous move that could endanger the life of Lolita, a 54-year-old orca, the attention of those concerned should be on the plight of the critically endangered orcas currently residing in Puget Sound.”

Way to blame-shift.
