Casino Giant Adelson Loses a Fortune, Has Another Fortune Left (LVS)

I liked the headline.

From Online Casino Advisory:
The bad news for Sheldon Adelson is that he's lost over $15 billion in paper worth in the last few months, as his Las Vegas Sands feels the effects of bear markets around the globe. The good news is that Adelson is still worth $17 billion, good enough to keep him in third place among richest American citizens, behind only Bill Gates and Warren Buffet.
