And what country can preserve its liberties if their rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms. The remedy is to set them right as to facts, pardon and pacify them. What signify a few lives lost in a century or two?

Hahaha! His shield is made of Ukrainium! Dude's gone from comic, to president, to folk hero. Even if the Russians catch up with him, he can't say he didn't live an interesting life.

This M-F'er, against all odds, has proven to be a brass balled, steely eyed, mad man leader the Ukrainians can be proud of.
He spits in the howling face of death.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy was asked to evacuate Kyiv at the behest of the U.S. government but turned down the offer.

In August 1907 the first metered taxicab took to the streets of New York City. A passenger, Harry N. Allen, incensed at being charged five dollars ($126.98 in today’s dollars!) for a journey of 0.75 miles (1.21 km), decided “to start a taxicab service in New York and charge so-much per mile."
Later that year Harry Allen imported 65 gasoline-powered cars from France and formed the New York Taxicab Company. The cabs were originally painted red and green but Harry repainted them all yellow to be visible from a distance. By 1908 the company was running 700 taxicabs.
