Rumors have it - Chernovetsky has got something severe, unstoppable and what would have put under the tombstone any other ordinary man long ago, but the money of our Mister continue doing miracles.

I think next thing we will hear about the extravagant Meyer will be the obituary. Chernovetsky's death will be convenient to everybody. Probably, except for Chernovetsky himself...
