Jane Galt drew my attention to a new push to bury Lenin’s mummy. As usual in Russian politics, both sides are wrong. The economically sensible and morally beautiful choice would be to auction off Lenin’s corpse on eBay, and use the proceeds to pay down Russia’s national debt. I bet it would fetch millions. And there’s no finer way to hammer in the point that Communism is truly dead.
