Russian Mafia Strikes Again!

One of the dudes in my class this week is an organizer of Las Vegas taxi drivers. One of his big challenges is working around the Russian Mafia circles that are entrenched in the different cab companies in Vegas.

He told me this $100 chip: There is a statue of Lenin on the first floor (not the lobby) of the Mandalay Bay hotel in LV. A couple of years ago someone mysteriously sawed off the head in an act of (unintended?) irony. The head was later found at a local thrift store.

I can't wait to see this when we head there next month. I hope it still exists.
