Coming soon :: Call me Al ed :: Let’s call him Al

ed: Alexandr

ed: Looks like you’re having it now instead of coming soon …

Alexandr Litvenienko. Poisoned by Polonium-210. That’s the way it was reported back then. It’s getting reported now that he was poisoned by Polonium …

Alexandr, Alexander. Litvinienko, Litvinenko. The point is that his name is Russian (Russki) – like other foreign languages and alphabets it can’t readily be translated into the English (Latin?) alphabet.

I have been reliably informed that Russki nicknames are often far longer than their original names which seems a lot weird. Anyway let’s call him Al.
