Who's this?

WhoIsThis No one came up with the answer yesterday, so I figured I'd give you another day to get it right.  

Who's this character in the photograph on the right - and no, it's not PJ O'Rourke (though it does look like they were separated at birth).

Here's a clue: "good revolution."

I'll give you the answer later this evening.  :-)

Pjcigar UPDATESean has the answer: it's Alexander Kerensky,  head of the lamentably short-lived Russian Provisional Government after February 1917's "good revolution" that peacefully overthrew the Czar.

And that's PJ O'Rourke at left.  Do you think by any chance they could be related?

  3. Julian,

    Yes, you are mistaken.

    Sean, you get the chocolate fish. Yes, that is the leader of Russia's tragically short-lived good revolution in 1917, Alexander Kerensky. [More on that here.]

    He could be PJ O'Rourke's twin brother, couldn't he.
