I am trying to understand Andrey Melnichenko, about whom I know absolutely nothing (11 cents)

Except that today’s Wall Street Journal has an article about his private yacht, which is 394 feet long (that does not make it the longest), cost more than $300 million, has a crew of over 35, has bath knobs that cost $40,000 each, has 23,600 square feet of living space, has two access boats, each of which cost over $1,000,000, has 24,000 horsepower engines, 60″ retractable plasma TVs, three swimming pools (at least one of which can be switched from fresh to salt water and back), etc., etc., etc.

He is 38 years old, Russian (name sounds Ukrainian), and has a super-model wife.

He and is wife float around a lot on this boat.

They rarely entertain.

I think I am going to learn more about him. And how much do you want to bet that I won’t like anything that I learn?
