Bud Fox: "Why do you have to wreck this company?"Gordon Gekko: "Because it's WRECKABLE" - Wall Street
Now, I'm not saying that Carl Icahn wrecked the Fontainebleau - the Fontainebleau's ample ambition wrecked itself. But I couldn't help but think of Gordon Gekko's "Wreckable" comment when I read the NY Post story (h/t VegasRex) about Gekko selling off the furniture out of the Fontainebleau.
"After picking up the bankrupt Fontainebleau Las Vegas on the cheap, billionaire investor Carl Icahn is now holding a fire sale at the massive unfinished casino resort.
While the project, which is 70 percent complete, sits idle on the Las Vegas Strip, Icahn has started selling off beds, dressers, TVs and other furnishings, according to a source.
