Yuri Longo – Dead Now

Russian white magician Yuri Longo, who became famous in Gorbachev's times for
raising the dead, has died much to his few fans' surprise, local media reported.
But several hours after his death he was again a star — now among Russian
Internet users.

No more than a dozen people used to visit his official web-site daily before
Feb. 19, the day of his death. But now the web-page is on the top of the Rambler
web counter's 'health' section with 1,766 visitors per day.

Probably, the man who had to be immortal, aimed to live a little longer. His
site registration expires on 06.06.06. He died of an aorta aneurism, while his
fans claim it was an "energy stroke".

Longo became extremely popular after millions of Soviet viewers saw him
reanimating a man in the evening news on a state TV-channel. However, later it
was revealed that Longo directed a piece of reporting himself and paid a bribe
for its translation.

He also hired an alcoholic to play a "part" of the man
raising from the dead.

Last year he tried to revive his fame, saying in an interview with a U.S.
immigrant Russian-language newspaper that he was the one to blame for Viktor
Yushchenko's disease as he reanimated him too late.

The Ukrainian president's
skin went off after his body spent six days in a grave, Longo said. However, he
also said that he has never seen the "real" Yushchenko and, thus, reanimated a
man to replace him at the request of a certain "Polish biological center" that
finally refused to pay him for the procedure.

Nevertheless, "operation Yushcehnko" did not claim Longo so much popularity
as his own real death."
