It is a tough time for casino owners.

The amount they're spending to buy Senators and Congressmen to outlaw their online competition is killing them.

Las Vegas says it's revenue is down. Because Vegas has a history of being on the up'n'up.

TuteTibiImperes: Actually, yes, that is the time when a strike may be called for because the management will likely try to use the downturn as an excuse to cut benefits, wages, or jobs.

FTFA:  The new contracts preserve health benefits and add measures to protect housekeepers from hazardous work conditions. The deals also aim to restore workers laid off when restaurants closed during the recession.

So, they're not even asking for more money, just that their health insurance isn't reduced, that workplace safety be improved, and that jobs be restored to those who lost them due to no fault of their own.


Literally worse than that German chap who didn't like juice.

Now, check out my new yacht. It comes with a dozen quad-copter drones that automatically seek and destroy sand castles and steal babies' candy.

Vegas is a dumpy money pit these days, and it's even worse if you gamble. Definitely needs more DeNiro and Peschi type characters to class it up.

Last trip there, I discovered the best line to fend the timeshare and other folks who walk up and try to sell you something.

Them: Hi, what brings you to Las Vegas?

Me: My mother's funeral.
