News out of Moscow on the horrific acid attack against Bolshoi artistic director Sergei Filin, and the prime suspect — even confessing  on Russian television — is a principal dancer with the company.

The Los Angeles Times has a story today, with quotes from my review. Read the Times story here and my original review here.
