Anyone know where you can get good borscht around San Antonio??

Now that amount of roubles, 5 million, will get you a whole lot of borscht!

Yum....borscht.  I don't believe I've had any good borscht since my mother passed away in 1998.

Of course borscht has nothing to do with the story I just got distracted.

Borscht, you can't beet it!!

Con artist convicted
The Moscow News -

A con-artist has been sentenced to six years in jail for stitching up 161 people to the tune of 5 million roubles.

An Astrakhan court found 42 year old Elena Kamasheva guilty after she took money off job-seekers, promising them work for between 25,000 and 50,000 roubles and provided them with apparently appropriate documentation.

After fleecing her fraud victims she went into hiding. She was discovered working in a shop, where she tried to steal 200,000 roubles.
