Courtesy of http://lamerkhav.livejournal.com/: A raggedy, destitute, desperate-looking old Russian woman and her little girl, smiling in mild derangement — or perhaps old woman’s dwarfish, weak-minded peer — on a virtual New Year’s postcard. For those outside the Russia-bound frame of reference: One is the country’s so-called “national leader” and current prime-minister, the other — its bobbleheaded president. Caption reads: “May all the bad things be gone in New Year…” Indeed. YT would drink to that.

Here’s a lovely song, “Hard Times Come Again No More,” performed by Kate and Ann McGarrigle, with Rufus Wainwright (Kate’s son) and Emilou Harris, and others. RIP, Kate.
