A GOP BILLY CARTER?
This is weird:
Berezovsky comes to Latvia over "education projects"
RIGA. Sept 21 (Interfax) - Russian business tycoon Boris Berezovsky, who lives in exile in London, arrived in Latvia on Wednesday and told Interfax that he would stay in the Baltic country "for a couple of days" and focus on "education projects" during his visit.
Berezovsky pointed out that he is one of the shareholders of Ignite! Inc., an educational software company. U.S. President George W. Bush's brother Neil Bush is the company's chairman and chief executive.
Here's a similar brief item from Russia's RIA-Novosti.
I'm no expert on Berezovsky. Wikipedia tells us:
Berezovsky's image among Russians is generally poor; many consider him the most unlawful and unethical of the oligarchs and blame him especially for the country's economic collapse. A 1996 Forbes magazine article titled "Godfather of the Kremlin?" portrayed Berezovsky as a mafia boss who had his rivals murdered. Berezovsky sued the magazine for libel, and the dispute was ultimately settled with the magazine retracting both claims. He is also the subject of a book of the same name, also by Paul Klebnikov, that has not been contested. The article's author, Paul Klebnikov, subsequently became the editor of the Russian edition of Forbes and was murdered in Moscow on 9 July 2004. He was reportedly shot four times as he left work and died shortly thereafter.

For a taste of how idiotic some of Ignite!'s software is, go here.
Neil Bush, of course, needs no introduction.
