A New Democratic Twist On The Inheritance Tax

From north of Putinland (formerly the Union of Socialist Slave Republics), where the midnight snacking never ends, comes this compelling tale of consumate *erp* environmental recycling.

Russian bears treat graveyards as 'giant refrigerators'

A shortage of bears' traditional food near the Arctic Circle has forced the animals to eat human corpses, say locals.

I can see Vladimir Hestonovich running through the streets of Archangel yelling, "It's people! It's my uncle!"
Calm yourself silly man.
Of course it is.

Russian bears have grown so desperate after a scorching summer they have started digging up and eating corpses in municipal cemetries, alarmed officials said today. Bears' traditional food – mushrooms, berries and the odd frog – has disappeared, they added.
These must be democrat bears. First bring back the inheritance tax in 2011, increase the capital gains tax and then you'll truly have "shovel ready" projects for the middle class that Obama's minions have been looking for.

Zio - Yes, they're trying to improve on last season's record. But Singletary still scares the crap out of me. Thank goodness he's in SanFran giving the girly men fits.

Nickie - that's the wisdom of not burying relatives in a pikanik basket.
