The Volga Flows Through Brooklyn.

Once again I'm kvelling! (I told you what that means a long time ago.  Shame on you if you don't remember.)

So, what's got me all aflutter?  Well, I'm sure you've all heard about the whole Russian Spies in NY/NJ thing, right? (Oh, Google it, ya big baby.  If you came here for straight news, I don't think I really want to talk to you.)

Anyway, I was feeling all left out.  The couple living in Montclair, NJ had a neighbor (15 years old), who was SHOCKED to hear that spies had been living next door.  “They couldn’t have been spies,” Ms. Gugig said. “Look what she did with the hydrangeas.”

The NY Post, of course homed in on the most crucial point; one of the arrested spies is a babe!

Well it seems that my nabe, Ft. Greene wasn't left out after all.  The husband of the babe, (I think -- There's some debate about who was actually married and who just lived together for half their lives and I didn't read any of the articles that carefully anyway), well anyway, one of the guys seemed to like my neighborhood a lot for clandestine drops.  The FBI has him on tape with his contact sitting at Tillie's drinking coffee and bitching about his working conditions.  Tillie's is just two blocks from me!  I've bitched about stuff in Tillie's before!
Tillie's Coffee Shop: Hotbed of Espionage and organic bran muffins.
And it didn't stop at Tillie's either!  They arranged drops in Ft. Greene Park, too.  And one of them bought a phone at the Verizon store up on Myrtle Ave. (The address the purchaser listed was "77 Fake Street"!)

I'm telling you, I've been totally wasting my time reporting potholes and illegal dumpers.  I'm gonna have to pay better attention (and get out of the house more), if I'm gonna land the big fish.

At least this gives me a new ambition!

According to the Times this AM, they haven't been charged with espionage because they passed no classified information to anyone and apparently don't have any to pass.

I'm not certain what exactly they are being accused of.

Well, now you know the sandbag was a document drop.

And the unicorn must have been onto the whole plot!
