Calls to finally lay Lenin's body in the ground6/15/2012
After 88 years as the ultimate display of Communist kitsch, moves are afoot in Russia to finally lay the corpse of Lenin to rest. This week, Russia's new cultural minister Vladimir Medinsky told a radio station that he believed it was time, saying, "I would observe all the appropriate ceremonies. As [Lenin] was a senior public figure the funeral should happen with all fitting state rituals, distinctions and a military salute in a suitable place." While previous attempts to get Lenin off ice and into the ground have been met with howls of protest, public support is growing as the Communist fan base shrinks. An April survey showed 56 percent were in favor of digging a hole for the waxy old guy.
Do you think Lenin should be buried?
