Ever since I read in Philip Short’s book Putin that the Russian leader and I eat identical meals (porridge and fruit for breakfast, yogurt and fruit for lunch) I’ve been feeling an urge for world domination.
By Reg Green
This is a heady experience for someone who has never achieved, even in his own household, a rank higher than serfdom.
I lack some vital information, however. Although Short’s book admirably combines a wealth of detail with high-paced narrative, he doesn’t tell us what the Kremlin serves for dinner. My guess, given the lightning changes in power in Russia in the last few days, is In-N-Out Burgers.
