Putin's Enlightenment Award Vaporizes

The prize I referred to below that was bestowed on Vladimir Putin was withdrawn.  The Quadriga Prize, bestowed on the anniversary of German reunification on October 3, is a private award that recognizes "role models for enlightenment, dedication and the public good."

Awarding it to Putin was a travesty - now corrected.  Medvedev's mild rebuke for the revocation is telling.
