Plastic surgery in Russia must be very expensive

According to this morning’s Boston Globe:

Stepping up the hunt for their biggest enemy, Russia’s security services said yesterday they would pay for plastic surgery for anyone who gives information leading to the killing or capture of Chechen warlord Shamil Basayev, on top of the $10 million reward promised.

You’d think someone with $10 million would be able to afford their own medical bills, but even in Russia things are getting expensive.

Rather than capping the Medicare drug benefit, as recently proposed in the Senate, we could win the war on terror by offering a 90 day supply of Nexium in exchange for information on terrorist whereabouts.
