A Red Tale in the Sunset.

With the break-up of the Soviet Union and the upheavals in Russia leading to new found openness, some members of the government decided to break with tradition and clean up some of the memorials and exhibits around Red Square.

When they opened the Lenin mausoleum for the first time, they found him caked with filth from years of public display., and it was extremely odoriferous.

This action caused such a stir among the citizenry that some well-intentioned Russians found themselves kicked out of office.

It goes to show that even with the new freedom in Russia, . . . You can’t air your dirty Lenin In public.

If I may bring this tale up to date, it seems that in today’s Russia everyone has again been put in their place.
