ROUND THE KREMLIN IN 80 SECONDS
It is announced that somebody called Mike Todd has announced that somebody called Mike Todd and someone called Liz Taylor are going on a mission to Moscow.
This is great news for the Russians who never dreamed that their call for high-level meetings would achieve anything as high-level as Mike Todd.
But they must have felt just a little tiny bit hurt at his remark: "Liz will rock Moscow ... She would undermine the whole economy there except she won't be staying long. There's nothing to buy."
Come, Mr. Todd. We seem to remember reading somewhere that the Russians have produced one or two commodities lately which, so far, even Mike Todd, the United States, and the rest of us have been unable to manufacture.
