A few of us were sharing thoughts in the "Hostage" thread and another topic popped up: Russia's last Imperial Family. I thought I would start a new thread seeing as how it didn't seem right to discuss other things when the hostage crisis in Russia is still going on.
Ladskater mentiond a Cranston number that I have never seen. Bestemianova (sp?) & Bhukin also did a professional number where they portrayed Rasputin/Tsarina Alexandra. I didn't really like it, but then again I'm not a fan of Rasputin at all.Yes I am LOL it IS great to see other people here who like them.
I posted a message asking if anyone skated a program in tribute to the family, someone said they were tyrants, honestly, can you imagine MARIA a tyrant? LOLOLOLOLOL Miss "I want to marry a sailor and have 20 kids?"
But I digress. Perhaps a new thread would be wise haha
LOL...and the tyrant thing I don't understand at all. I could understand severe criticism for Nicholas II and Tsarina Alexandra, but their children were innocent pawns that were murdered under the most brutal of circumstances. And, surprisingly, I've also had arguments with people that try to justify the murders of the four Grand Duchesses and the Heir. Many people believe that it was only payback for what the Romanovs had done in the past. Sorry, but the slaying of five innocents can never be justified or explained away. The Communist regime proved right off the bat they were no better (and perhaps worse) than anything that had come before them. Sure...murder kids and young women in one of the most brutal fashions imaginable...good start!
