  1. No, it wasn’t that dinky, bourgeois excuse for a revolution that happened a few years ago.

    From Wikipedia:

    “Ignatieff was born in Toronto, the son of Russian-born Canadian diplomat George Ignatieff and Alison Grant, and the grandson of Count Pavel Ignatiev, Minister of Education to Tsar Nicholas II and one of the few Tsarist ministers to have escaped execution by the Bolsheviks.”

    Hmm. After looking at his grampy’s wiki entry, he was also apparently Minister of the Interior, quite likely the head of the tsarist fuzz, I’d imagine.

  2. Todd is not literal, it is just that sarcasm does not translate well on the nets. Inadvertently however it has worked out quite well because Todd made the virtual link I was too lazy to make. The inside joke is now outed!
