Dateline San Diego: Wednesday, 19th of August 2015.
Today's headline: "Woman caught leaving Trader Joe's with a large wedge of Edam cheese!"
She would face criminal charges and a possible life sentence if this occurred in Russia today. Ref: "Putin gets tough on illicit cheese."
Question of the day: What is a Russian fondue? It's called "Putin on the Ritz – or the naked cracker!"
