And today's Last Word In Business is, a trunk that has Russians seeing red. A building-sized Louis Vuitton trunk was set up in Moscow's historic Red Square.


This big thing was meant to house a charity exhibition, featuring suitcases from the luxury fashion company. But reaction was not so charitable. Lawmakers condemned it as an obscenity in a sacred place.

WERTHEIMER: So yesterday, the government ordered the trunk be packed up and sent home.

GREENE: Only in Russia. And I'm David Greene.
