I stand corrected

I spent the weekend with my mother and let her know I'd blogged about Rasputin on Friday.  No, no, the prof didn't meet Rasputin, he met Kerensky, the Russian Prime Minister from July to November of 1917.*  It was Kerensky who had the pleasure of meeting Grigori and the bugs in his beard.  So that's four degrees of separation through time from Rasputin to me.  Further from the bugs.  Not a bad thing.

*Kerensky fled Russia shortly after the revolution, and eventually moved to the United States where he worked as a professor and lecturer up until his death.
