$1 for the Hands of Victory?

5 Miles of Economic Illiteracy... Selection Bias...

Esquire features a fascinating story in pictures: The seven wonders of the totalitarian world.

This article reminds me that it's time to renew my call to privatize Lenin's mummy. I wish I could make the same suggestion for the other six "wonders." But unfortunately, the other six (like Saddam's "Hands of Victory") are even uglier than Lenin's remains and a lot harder to move to less obtrusive locations...

I guess they don't want two from Russia, but I found this famous monument much more awe inspiring than Lenin's remains. It is found at the entrance to Stalin's exhibition center.

From Cuba, Elian Gonzalez's monument. Jose Marti points towards Miami while holding Elian.
