Breathtaking Inflation

MOSCOW -- Two Russian pensioners collapsed in a bread shop and had to be given first aid after a sales assistant mistakenly put out signs saying the price of bread had gone up three times, the newspaper Izvestia said Friday. The pensioners in the central Russian republic of Bashkortostan read that a loaf would now cost 1,060 rubles (55 cents) as opposed to 350 rubles.
