    My first reaction was aakh! This is horrible news; but I appreciate your letting us know, Ptichka. I have cared about TT for a long time, and this hurts. I hope it does not affect her health. This is such a shock.

    I hate to be too negative, but not really. She is a famous person in a country that is still, no matter what the propaganda says, a rather unlawful one. If you recall, Yagudin had his Porshe stolen just a few months ago...

    Yes on both counts. Even more tragic, in 2001, Kira Ivanova (1984 bronze Olympic medalist) was murdered in her apartment. Police called it random, and that was that.

    Dictionary defines dacha as "a Russian country house or villa" (http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/dacha).

    Wikipedia discusses them here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dacha. I used the original Russian word because I've seen many translators do this since all English equivalents are a bit inaccurate.
