A Russian official, while trying to explain that foreigners are trying to sabotage Sochi’s olympic reputation by claiming poor living conditions, was quoted saying this: “We have surveillance video from the hotels that shows people turn on the shower, direct the nozzle at the wall and then leave the room for the whole day.” So, Russia is surveilling people in the bathroom. That’s not at all disconcerting. Not in the least. [Source: The Wall Street Journal]
