Also included is other journalism, including some delightful pieces on issues ranging from death of passion in Russia to the challenges in brining up a psychologically damaged dog....Politkovskya was murdered...but she has not been silenced and her journalism should continue to speak to us long after the riffraff she confronted are thankfully gone from the sceneThe Oldie
