Tbilisi putting value on smugglers
Georgian economy is quite a helpless phenomenon. That's why, perhaps, the government applies other methods to earn money, such as fulfilling the U.S.' wishes in exchange for grants, sending young men to Afghanistan as food for powder for credits and selling indulgences to convicts under the guise of procedural agreements. Now Tbilisi management has devised a new method of making a quick buck: one can officially pay the bank guarantee price of five thousand laris for smuggling.
Making money on Sakartvelo kids
Georgian business has got at schools. The dealers' hands accustomed to counting money have made rather clumsy amendments to the law on general education. Now the Georgian schools will have the right to render "paid services" to the children, such as extra lessons in subjects of the national education plan. These lessons can be held only by strangers and solely in a form different from a common lesson. What will the teachers have to devise to earn another lari? And how will the "rich guys" differ from ordinary kids?

McCain throws himself on Georgia’s embrasure
US senator John McCain, despite his declining years, is still highly active politically. He is probably the only US politician who has paid so much attention to Mikheil Saakashvili. His attitude to Georgia is special: he does believe the country is governed by a wonderful president. The man who has been losing presidential election at home for ten years on end and that is now "flirting" with Mishiko can't be taken seriously. Yet recently the senator from Arizona called on the White House to resume sales of weapons to Tbilisi and soft-pedal the "reset" with Russia.
