Dateline: Russia—British newspaper The Sun reports that a 28-year-old Russian man died after ingesting an entire bottle of Viagra in a bid to participate in a 12-hour orgy. Two women told Moscow police they bet mechanic Sergey Tuganov $4,300 that he wouldn’t be able to satisfy them both during a nonstop half-day sex marathon. Tuganov won the bet but collapsed a few minutes later from a heart attack. “We called emergency services but it was too late, there was nothing they could do,” said one of the female participants, who identified herself only as Alina. Medics on the scene said Tuganov’s death was most likely caused by the quantity of Viagra he consumed. There are 30 pills in an average 100mg bottle of Viagra.
[Re: Ortiz y Pino, “Talk Dirty,” Feb. 26-March 4] Yes, the locusts have arrived, and they're sitting in the Roundhouse. I find Mr. Ortiz Y Pino’s forgone conclusion that raising taxes is the solution for all of New Mexico’s woes sadly lacking in fiscal sanity. This is highlighted by his conclusion that we won’t be able “to sustain the level of government services that is necessary.” The state budget has increased 50 percent since 2002. Were all of those increases “necessary”? Gov. Richardson’s private army of highly paid exempt employees increased more than 100 percent in the same time. Are they all “necessary”? Given that our state survived for 90 years without them leads me to believe they aren’t as “necessary” as Mr. Ortiz y Pino would like to believe.
