Lighting Lenin

Back in mid-November, Jay of Flippin Channels was here on a work trip/visit, and we showed him the Lenin statue in Fremont around 8 or 9 at night. My comment at the time was "We won the Cold War, so of course we plundered their best statues and took them home. There he is." I was pretty sure that the tradition of looking fallen empires was alive and well. Heck, if we got two or three more Lenins, we could set up a terrific troika or quadriga.

Jay's response was "Somebody should light that thing up." I'm pretty sure he meant with spotlights, not with, you know, Molotov cocktails. Ahem. Anyway.

Jay, your wish has been granted. The red star shines again in all its glory.

Now I'm just waiting for the Green Ronin Red Star staffers to take their holiday pictures there.
