    ...and that extends to our country's would-be adoptive parents.  I think we need to divide the question. Russia ought to treat its parentless children a lot better, and the US ought to care less about the travails of some Russian criminals vs. others since that's all it's about.  All Russian oligarchs, the ins and the outs, got that way because they stole the accumulated wealth of the people in the early 1990s.  Whether Russia is receptive or hostile to international adoptions is something it has every right to figure out on its own.  

    You know, I sometimes think if I could see, I'd be kicking a lot of ass. -Stevie Wonder at the Glastonbury Festival, 2010
