In 2010, all the spies are on Facebook

In 2010, all the spies are on Facebook


I was curious to see if any of the alleged Russian spies rounded up this week were on Facebook -- where else would you go to pry out American society's secrets? -- and of course they are, at least the glammed-out hip-Manhattanite wannabe called "Anna Chapman," if that indeed is her real name.

Here's Chapman's Facebook profile page as much as can be accessed by the public (unfortunately, we weren't friends -- I have to say I would have thought in a weird way it was kind of cool if we were); she also has 180 friends, some of who indeed have Russian-sounding names or even names in the Cyrillic alphabet, something of a giveaway, no? (The top posting on her wall is also in Cyrillic and in Russian, apparently the news of her arrest!) Like any good spy, she also lists Alma de Agave Tequilla as one of her "likes and interests."

Her quote: "If you can imagine it, you can achieve it; if you can dream it, you can become it."

I was thinking about sending her a friend request but I'm a little too busy this week to squeeze in an interview with the FBI.
