Getting a Good View of Things

The above is a statue of the founders of Kiev on independence square. Opposition supporters have perched themselves on it. Nothing special about the picture, I just liked it.

UPDATE: The NYTimes has a pretty good write up of the current situation and the events of the past 24 hours. Registration may be required.

UPDATE II: I have also been remiss in pointing out that a good round up of Ukraine election links can be found at einsodernull.de

UPDATE III: I'm heading home today for Thanksgiving. Have to overnight in Frankfurt on the way back. Expect updates to be pretty light. Posted by Hello
