Putin announces split with wife

Vladimir Putin's nearly 30-year marriage has ended, the Russian president and his wife told state-run television in a joint interview.

"This was our joint decision. Our marriage is over," Putin told Russia 24, standing next to Lyudmila Putin, in an interview shown Thursday. "We almost don't see each other. We have different lives."

    What are you talking about, Rawr?

    JR, do you think you will ever be persuaded to stop stealing our names? I cannot think of what possible reason you have to continue acting this way...please.
    Oh, and JR? I don't facepalm any more. Mostly because of you; pat yourself on the back. It's also a way to tell when it ISN'T me, and merely you signing into your WP account.

      @banasy. J.R. is at church services. He wants me to relay a message to you:

      I would never, ever steal anyone's name. I am almost hurt at such an accusation. I respect you and all bloggers here. I certainly hope that the trolls keep getting deleted.
      Best regards,
      J.R.

      Although I’m dubious and really haven’t read the fine print relating to the NSA’s electronic “surveillance program”, there is one thing I do understand, the program was classified as “Top Secret”. “Edward Snowden, a 29-year-old former undercover CIA employee, unmasked himself Sunday as the principal source of recent Washington Post and Guardian disclosures about top-secret National Security Agency programs.” I don’t care if you’re god himself and you are totally opposed to the policies of the US, you have no right to give “comfort and aid” to the enemies of our country. This situation could have been handled much differently without committing treason!

    Well, you should stop doing that; it is very rude to steal people's names, Mary.
