What if Putin were to resign tomorrow? What if he has been killed by his closest and most trusted advisers and that's the real reason why his eagerly non-awaited speech has been delayed? Wouldn't it be wonderful? But what if someone even worse were to come to power in Kremlin?

The year was 1953. Stalin died. Nobody remembers times "BS" - before Stalin. Personality cult was called that for a reason. Mass hysteria at the levels not seen until Queen Liz II died. Maybe not even then.
My grandma, age 31, impacted by mass hysteria, is calling my granddad at work. Telling him the news. "What will happen to us now???" "Don't worry", - says granddad. "It can't get any worse".
