College Level Pokemon Reading?
(and a TCG tin sale!)

Not too much in the way of news except I spotted a sign over the TCG aisle at Target today that a 25% off sale began on January 6 and it includes Pokemon TCG TINS amongst other select TCG items.  The sale runs about two weeks and because I have not been feeling too well this week, the exact date I had entrusted to memory has escaped me.  However, rest assured the sale sign indicates you have a while to brave the winter weather before this all ends.

The Russian I learned in college to get my astronomy :O degree is a bit rusty but the ISBN# turned up this review indicating that the book "depicts the chaotic world of Russian business as it transitions from the Yeltsin years into the Putin era."  Urm...  surely a book for the more erudite amongst us...  LOL.  Pojo liked the cover and wanted me to share.
