Putin back off the Appalachian Trail

The Long National Nightmare is over.  Vladimir Putin suddenly re-appeared after an eleven day absence.  He was off on Russia’s version of the Appalachia Trail — around Krasnoyarsk, I suppose — and is back.

Not A Coup.  Or maybe it is in the sense that he was working out some matters with the inner chambers of power.
