New revelations of the U.S. government’s expanded data collection of Americans’ internet and cellphone use became public just as Edward Snowden started his 1-year temporary asylum in Russia, or as Putin calls it “The Anti-Pussy Riot.”

Free speech will not be tolerated in Russian churches, but a spy on the run from the U.S. makes Putin want to rip off his shirt and take a picture.

Some good news! It’s the Sun. : )
