Folks,

This is a little bit off topic, because it involves murder and possible 
corruption on a scale of hundreds of millions of dollars. It is so big 
that it has spilled over into international relations between Russia and 
the United States, because the US has banned travel access for a number 
of Russians involved, and Russia has retaliated with a ban on US 
adoptions of Russian orphans.  This could escalate into other areas 
which might eventually include scientific cooperation in such areas as 
the space program.  Lets hope it gets resolved before it gets even more 
nasty.

Dave
