Cap'n Vlad

Whozat bald headed dude in the submarine? Could it be ...

Yes! It's Russia's President Vladimir Putin on board the C-Explorer 5 submersible after a dive to see the remains of the naval frigate "Oleg", which sank in the 19th century, in the Gulf of Finland in the Baltic Sea July 15, 2013. Aleksey Nikolskyi/RIA Novosti/Kremlin

The Christian Science Monitor has a story about the dive. The Conversation, whoever they are, has a short overview of Putin's leadership. It is mostly positive, which is a nice change of pace from most of what I hear from the Western media. I can't really tell, but things seem to be getting better in Russia lately, so maybe he is doing a good job.
