I'd like to know why we've never had polls before (I can't remember any - someone correct me if I'm wrong) yet we suddenly get one about Putin?
Why does this warrant a poll, yet other current events over the years haven't?
According to Murphy, Yeltsin went from Esalen to an ordinary supermarket, and the errand reduced him to tears. He''d been told for years by the Communist Party that such a bounty did not exist, as it did not in Russia. As Murphy tells it, Yeltsin fell apart, crying, "They lied to me. They lied to me."
