A quick Caucasus roundup

Here's what's shaking:

+laws are changing in Azerbaijan, but peace may be nearer

+the Economist's Georgia diary; is aid money being spent correctly?

+Russian influence is growing in Abkhazia, while South Ossetia is "running on empty"

+"what a moronism!" (plus: "Democratic [wow!] Anti-Fascist [wow!] Youth Movement 'Nashi'")

And now you know.
