So, why is this man no longer a Romanov, then? Deiniol 14:27, 28 May 2005 (PDT)

Actually, he never was "a Romanov" (i.e. related to the czar). Romanov was a name I seemingly picked at random. Well, not entirely at random, because the person I actually had in mind was Grigory Romanov, a member of the Soviet politburo *here* and a rival to Gorbachev. But the more I thought of it, the more I had the feeling that this figure was merely a snorist counterpart of Gorbachev and that Gorbachenko would be a more IB-like solution. In fact, I made the decision to change the name already quite a while ago, I simply forgot to wikify it. Anyway, Marc knew it, and that will partially explain why the picture is exactly what I had in mind, even under the old name! --IJzeren Jan 00:10, 29 May 2005 (PDT)
