Vanishing acts

and the man
who was there

In 1940, Josef Stalin orders Commissar for Water Transport, Nikolai Yezhov, removed from a photo of the two taken in happier times.

Then last fall, Vladimr Putin orders video shots of Mikhail G. Delyagin, a critical political analyst, removed from a prominent political talk-show.

Definitely looks to me like Putin is moving forward on his plans for world domination....

He also tried to get a character removed from one of the Harry Potter films, claiming that it was too good a likeness of himself, and obviously some dastardly western capitalist plot to undermine the great Mother Russia. Or something like that.
