Dramatic before and after pictures of Viktor Yushchenko's ravaged face, and another comparison, both illustrating an AP story on accusations that the Ukrainian opposition leader was poisoned in September during a private dinner with Ihor Smeshko, head of Ukraine's internal security services. Details from the Austrian doctors in The Star in South Africa, and a birth-of-a-leader narrative in the Globe and Mail with more information on the poison theory.
I'm not making any accusations. I have limited experience with food poisoning and in this case the political is personal—I just had a nice Thanksgiving playing the turd in a punchbowl of international leftists who were birddogging Bush for the way he's handling the Ukraine crisis. But I will say I've never seen a sushi that could do this to you.
