The business magazine Forbes "absolutely denies"
a rumor that it's being bought by a Russian private equity firm, Onexim.
The irony here is that it was Forbes, back in 1991, which published a hoax
claiming that the Russian government, desperate for foreign currency, was selling the embalmed body of Vladimir Lenin to the highest bidder.
Times and fortunes have changed. It appears now the shoe is on the other foot.
