The above video is an up and coming new artist from the Ukraine. (Sidebar--why do we always put "the" before Ukraine?) It just so happens that this artist is also the Mayor of Kiev, the capital of Ukraine. According to a friend in Ukraine, this guy also enjoys a fair amount of mind-altering substances, and has a reputation for increasing taxes on a whim. Our good friend Wikipedia gives one example, he increased "the price of household services (such as hot and cold running water and gas) by 340%."
