Dictator Down!

The other night Bobbi and I watched The Death of Stalin, and holy hell was it funny. Dark, sure, but darkly hilarious.

Let this flick be a reminder to you whenever people start raving about Trump... or Biden ...being some sort of totalitarian dictator what an actual totalitarian dictatorship looks like. 

The federal government is, and always has been, fond of overreach, but we've got a long, long way to go between wherever we are and people taking a Tokarev round behind the ear in the basement of the Lubyanka.

Also, I LOVED the way Jason Isaacs played Zhukov. There were a few really good performances in the movie, but that one stuck with me.
