I'm Betting They're Technical Manuals

I don't like to crib from Gawker, but this photo they found of an abandoned Russian library is stunning. So here it is.

In other news, Zimbabwe is a wreck post-election. Rounding up the foreign journalists, as my colleague put it, is always a sign of a deeper crackdown. In a place where exiles are spending dollars to have South African bus drivers carry in a bag of flour for their relatives, how much worse can it get? I heard on NPR the other day inflation is at 100,000 percent.

Books in a heap; reporters in prison. Wrecks everywhere: Everybody blog.
