Freedom predicted for Pussy Riot members

  • FREEDOM PREDICTED: For Pussy Riot member.
On an otherwise slow morning, my attention was caught by Twitter notes on the predicted release tomorrow of two members of the jailed Russian punk group Pussy Riot under a new amnesty act.

Complicated matters of oppressive Russian government and politics aside, there's a small matter of local interest.

Will the state's daily newspaper honor the historic release by  restoring the name of the group in the news account? A headline seems too much to ask.

A review of the Democrat-Gazette's archives shows the name slipped into newspaper accounts in August and May of 2012, but not since then. Nashville Pussy also made an appearance in D-G pages in 2011.

You'll have to do your own searches for pussy cat, puss in boots and other uses of the sensitive word.
