That article could have been about 4 seconds: There is a show in Vegas, the venue was going to close for good in a few months, and they decided that closing early was a better plan than fixing the issue.

We didn't need 14 paragraphs about Las Vegas, how it has casinos and shows, how Siegfried & Roy were once the "darlings" of the strip, all that other shiat. We really just wanted to know why the place closed, rather than fixing the issue. I mean, 90% of the time, we complain if the article is too short, but there's nothing there that adds to the scenario.

That article had a lot of filler. Burn half of that article.

I would have thought the smell of his corpse would have been the bigger issue...

This article should be used in college journalism classes. You know why.

I would like to see the word "icon" (and "diva", while we're at it) severely restricted.  Just as in wood or metal shop class, when you had to get 'checked out' on a machine before you used it, so should you have to show that you have knowledge of what those words actually mean before you use them.

Most modern journalists haven't gone to college, and the few who have didn't major in it.
