My first reaction to the news from Denver was so still and did not pass a shock. Varlamov and the prison in contact in consciousness as "harmonious" as football fans and the Grand Theatre. How many play a game in the NHL, "Wild Russian," from which one could expect whatever scandalous chronicle, but to plunge into a kind of nightmare I had the most calm, steady and serious of them all? Do not believe it. Prove....

The benefit of such cases missing. Prove that Simon, whose main sin always seemed to me too trusting, is guilty of anything more horrible. Prove that the person whose photo should not be in the police report, and an encyclopedia article on "Good Russian guy," did someone stomped their feet and stole the dead of night. Prove it to me as in America believed - "beyond a reasonable doubt." And yet - I do not believe.
