Thread Name: Free the Pussy Riot Three
Subject: RE: Free the Pussy Three
I presume those girls named the band "Pussy Riot" because...

1. They figured it was way cool to have a somewhat rude-sounding English language name for the group.

And..

2. They figured it would get them a lot of attention.

Well, they have more attention now than they could ever have dreamed of! ;-) In the West, this would be a very good career move for a musical group. In Russia or China...perhaps not.

Putin is way overreacting. He must feel a bit vulnerable to be acting that way. He'd have been better off to just ignore the incident or laugh it off.
