So what's with this "butter shortage" in Norway being reported around the internet, where people are said to be offering up to $500 for a pound of butter? Anyone know anything about that?

Russians, for hundreds of years have had Czars telling them when to take a piss. Putin is no different.

I don't know what is scarier, more Putin, or the Oligarchs taking control.
