Did I just see what I thought I saw?
Last night I was watching the ABC World News with Diane Sawyer, catching up on the usual tidbits - the oil spill, the hurricane, and the Russian spy case. As a kid who grew up in the 70s/80s and someone who has been to Russia several times, I'm interested in this sort of stuff. I actually had a former KGB agent as a bodyguard while traveling through Russia and saw the changes in Russia between my visits there, so you can imagine how fascinated I am with the Cold War tensions between our two countries.
As I watched Brian Ross' report about the alleged spies, a familiar site flashed across the screen as Brian spoke about one of the accused spies ties to real estate. Yes, although the photo is terrible, that is what you think it is - an ActiveRain account. Seems one of the alleged spies set up an account, but didn't do much with it (she had 980 points). I checked this morning and the account (a non-Rainmaker account) is still there and has only one blog post.
While it may not be of any importance to anyone, I find it fascinating that there was a (once again, alleged) Russian secret agent right here on ActiveRain! I wonder if she ever read my blog? Perhaps she has sent posts of mine direct to Vladimir Putin? Maybe I'm being spied on right now because I'm typing this? I love it - intrigue, mystery, and a dash of Cold War counter-intelligence.
