This week’s question: President Vladimir Putin is officially the most handsome man in Russia, according to a poll of 2,000 Russians. “Neither actors, nor athletes, nor other politicians can compete with him today,” fawned the pollster. If the strutting, often topless autocrat were to write a how-to book for other tyrants, detailing ways they can boost their sex appeal, what should it be titled?
