Pussy Riot Back In The News

Punk "band" Pussy Riot are back in the news, now because two members are in hiding, in countries with no laws extradition agreement with Russia according to rumors. These rumors are supported by the husband of one of the hiding members of the protest group, and reported in a NBC article, so while I generally dislike NBC good on them.

I am however growing more skeptical of Pussy Riot, they have dominated coverage of the anti-Putin protests and are more of a distraction than anything else. If they come out with an album any time soon I'm throwing in the towel when it comes to supporting them because they'll have proven themselves to be what their detractors claim, a protest group more concerned with infamy than any cause.
