    Add to the mix that England lost to Croatia in the World Cup semifinals on Wednesday night — the nation was suffering from a collective hangover, and not the good kind. Meanwhile, out in the quiet English countryside, 100 counterterrorism investigators have concluded that a middle-aged British woman was killed by a dose of Soviet-era nerve agent, the same batch of chemical weapon that May charged was deployed on English soil by Russian actors, likely with President Vladi­mir Putin’s knowledge.

      1. Ha ha, he more or less gave it up voluntarily.

        Lawyers: We have to drive two hours down to Warsaw and two hours back to meet with him. It's impossible to prepare a defense!

        Judge: I'll fix that, move him up here to Alexandria where we parked Zacarias Moussaoui. He was plenty comfortable.

        Lawyers: No no, just kidding, let him stay in the briar patch.
