A New Home for Lenin?

Here's the latest entry in the "It's About Time, Comrade" Department:

According to a poll conducted earlier this month by the Russian government, a majority of Russians now favor removing Vladmir Lenin from his gaudy "display crypt" and finally putting him in the ground. 52% favored the burial while 37% were opposed.

However, only 9% suggested they might take to the streets to oppose Lenin's burial. My, my; how the Red embers have cooled... except, I'm afraid, in the place where Mr. Lenin may now reside.
