Student Writes to Putin, Loses Graduation Honors

Remember back in like 1980 when some little girl in Maine wrote a letter to Leonid Brezhnev asking him to help end the Cold War? This is nothing like that.

No, see, this wasn't an American student, it was a Russian student. She didn't ask for world peace either. She asked for a videocamera. And instead of becoming a national hero and a cutesy human-interest story, she got her grades cut so that she wouldn't graduate with honors.

As if sitting through "Comparative Political Systems" classes in junior high school weren't enough, now as an adult I have to hear more reasons that the U.S. of A. is a way cooler place to live than Russia. What the hell is going on?

OK, so High School principals can be real jerwaters, even in Russia. I guess that's not really news, is it? But here's the weird thing: Putin bought her a videocamera and scolded the school administration.

Over.  End of Story.  Go home now.
