Went to an article at the WSJ Online, and saw a big 'ol ad for

Mikhail Khodorkovsky is the Russian tycoon/oil billionaire who was Putin's political prisoner. Dude's got a legal team bigger than OJ, Jackson, and the Ramseys put together.

Tough situation. Dude's a political prisoner. That's wrong. But dudes'a Russian oil billionaire. What exactly was he doing while millions of his countrymen were starving? And is it fair that this dude can hire 20 lawyers from several continents? What about the human rights lawyers who are always getting tossed in the clink, tortured, and disappeared in Africa, South America, and other places - sometimes at the hands of the CIA?

On a related note, Raimondo has a column up on America's fifth column that's pretty good.
