Snowden is the National Security Agency data-leaker who, according to reports, has fled Hong Kong and traveled to Russia. Journalists tipped off that he was flying from Moscow to Havana, Cuba, descended on an Aeroflot flight on which Snowden was booked -- but he was wasn't on the plane.
(If you haven't been following this escapade on Twitter this morning, you're missing a fine piece of journalistic hilarity. There's even a Twitter account for Snowden's seat on the flight.)
Nevertheless, Foreign Policy magazine has offered several pieces of good advice to Snowden on how he should go about receiving political asylum in a foreign nation. The magazine writes, "If Snowden wishes to reach a ripe old age in Quito or Guayaquil, he might want to take some cues about staying one step ahead of the law from the fugitives of the late 1960s and early 1970s."
