Before We Forsake The Subject Of Sturgeons

Some of the recruiting operatives in the chapter meetings this week expressed regret that although Richard Carey seems to have taken photos throughout his travels learning about Sturgeons for his book, The Philosopher Fish, he did not trouble to add any of them to the book itself.  I, like you, wanted to see the 14-foot Beluga Sturgeon stuffed and mounted in a certain Astrakhan palace of piscatorial love, and here is one of the photos I found on Google.  Note the fact that YEARS after swimming her last, this noble Sturgeon has continued to recruit Shaved Monkeys like these to the Cause, from her perch on top of what looks like a couple of music stands.  (Fun fact:  the little girl was NOT recruited on this trip, but her mother was.  Names withheld for security reasons.)

In general, I would like to COMMEND the Russian people for their appreciation of fish in general and Beluga Sturgeons specifically.  Carey states in his book that Vladimir Putin is quite the ecologically-minded fish advocate, and I HOPE HE'S RIGHT; as far as I know, when Vladimir Putin speaks, RUSSIA LISTENS.  (My equivalent Conspiracy Zone Leader in the far east is less than certain.  More on that later.)

Not to blow anyone's cover here, but who told you Vladimir Putin is NOT a fish?
