Whoops, Great October whizzed right by with nary a mention. Have a great belated GO, everyone and enjoy the New New Model Red Army Choir as they lay down some lucky. h/t Jackie Hutter

Not much celebrated in Putin’s Russia, nonetheless it is the Day of the Great October Revolution (November 7), so storm and occupy the Winter Palace nearest you.

The day is almost over, be sure and kiss a Bolshie before it’s done, or it’s five years’ bad luck. And no one enjoys an infelicitous пятилетка.

Things kind of went to horrifying shit, but by using modern financial innovations I think we can make it work this next time – especially in the metropole!

Thanks Andrew, I’ll sleep much more easily once I’ve signed up for this. Where would we be without FIRE industry innovations! I think I’ll kick in the extra for coverage against Bonapartism.
