» No more Gambling in Moscow

MOSCOW — One of the largest mass layoffs in recent Russian history is to occur on July 1,2009 , and the Kremlin itself is decreeing it, economic crisis or not.

The government is shutting down every last legal casino and slot-machine parlor across the land, under an antivice plan promoted by Vladimir V. Putin that just a few months ago was widely perceived as far-fetched. But the result will be hundreds of thousands of people thrown out of work.

And in a move that at times seems to have taken on almost farcical overtones, the Kremlin has offered the gambling industry only one option for survival: relocate to four regions in remote areas of Russia, as many as 4,000 miles from the capital. The potential marketing slogans — Come to the Las Vegas of Siberia! Have a Ball near the North Korean Border! — may not sound inviting, but that is in part what the government envisions.

» Lakers Owner Picks Casino Over Parade

The Lakers celebrated their 15th championship as a franchise on Wednesday with a parade through the streets of downtown Los Angeles. The event culminated with a rally in front of 80,000-plus at the L.A. Memorial Coliseum, but one person noticeably absent from the festivities was the team's owner, Jerry Buss.

Buss wasn't sick or out of town or anything, it's just that parades aren't really his thing. And actually, while all of this was going on, he was spotted sitting alone at a poker table inside a nearby casino.

TMZ has the photographic evidence, which shows Buss at the Bicycle Casino with the parade being shown on a television above the poker table.
Buss has become less involved with the team in recent years, and has largely turned over the operations to his children
