Luzhkov's annual head injury

In what seems to be becoming an annual tradition, Moscow's Mayor, Yury Luzhkov announced a minor head injury. A year ago, a firework hit him on the head; this year, he suffered a ski injury.

According to Reuters:
Moscow mayor Yuri Luzhkov appeared in public with a black eye and a large bruise on his forehead on Tuesday, saying he had suffered a skiing accident.

"To avoid all unnecessary talk and guesses about my appearance I would like to say that skiing down a slope has led to certain changes in my appearance," Luzhkov, 70, told Ria Novosti news agency.
