Poker? I Don't Even Know Her!

So you may have heard about how billionaire casino mogul Steve Wynn accidentally poked a hole in his Picasso moments after selling to a man for 139 million dollars. Cut him some slack though because he is after all partly blind. 139 million? I'd say Steve Wynn did the buyer a favor.

I did see this back when his private collection was open to the public. Now his collection is scattered about in various important areas of the casino. Yes, that's right...I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw a Rembrandt self-portrait hanging behind the registration counter in the VIP area where most hotels would have a framed print of sailboats on a beach. Sounds like the casino business has been lucrative, to say the least.
