For those who give a crap about the 'business side of things' Las Vegas Sands Corp's President and COO William Weidner has resigned effective immediately.

It's no secret that there has been growing dissent in the upper ranks, with uber boss Sheldon Adelson seeming to grow more and more out of touch with each investor call. According to Reuters, LVS had set up a 'special committee' to try and work through the differences, which seems to have failed.

LVS has appointed 71 year old Michael Leven to add some youthful energy to LVS' strategy take Weidner's place effective April 1st, 2009. ... unless this whole thing is really just an elaborate April fools gag, in which case hardy har har.
