Happy Birthday

Mikhail Fradkov!

This is the first of what I hope to be a long tradition of birthday greetings for various members of the Russian Government.  Misha Fradkov (as you will no doubt discover, many people within Putinania have nicknames) is 58 years old today.  I actually feel a little sorry for Misha because it must have sucked as a child to have your birthday on the first day of school.  As head of the SVR, I doubt it matters too much anymore.

Anyway, Misha, I hope that you have plenty of cake and cognac at the office, and more shashlik, caviar, and vodka than you know what to do with this evening.

There, how’s that for a birthday greeting?
