He is still fighting


Viktor Yushchenko as he appeared in July 2004 (left) and as he appeared in November 2004 (right) after the poisoning

Failed to believe. Not in the least when Jay Leno likened the transformation to that of 'The Thing' from the Fantastic Four series.

Viktor Andriyovych Yushchenko is the main opposition candidate in the recently held Ukrainian Presidential elections. The election results created a stir in the nation and the Supreme Court has ordered a re-run of the run-off election for December 26. During the course of the campaign Yushchenko is suspected to have been poisoned with dioxin. [source]

Yes it is sad that this had to happen.

Our politicians, Paran? Certainly. :)

[NPR says that the amount of Dioxin found in Yushchenko was the second highest ever found in a human body! And researchers are close to identifying the type of Dioxin. With that they can narrow down on the country of origin of the material...closing in!]

If a pixel were to see and interpret things as I do, and should it express, with a dose of my thoughts and afterthoughts; the flavor of such a talk should be close to one that you find on this page. And yes, cricket being my favorite sport, dont be surprised to find one too many related terms. Pad up is one such!
