A rich man's city! A few comments on Vegas

Las Vegas... what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas and that means most of your money!
For those of you hoping to strike it rich in Vegas, remember; "Vegas was not built on Winners!" and you can certainly see that from this "over the top" city!

A bit of trivia...
  • Did you know that when Paul Anka first played there, he was too young to enter the casino?
  • The Flamingo is named after a long legged showgirl girlfriend of Bugsy Siegel!
  • Howard Hughes bought the Desert Inn because he was asked to leave for overstaying his welcome!
  • Visitors to Vegas top over 37.5 million every year!
  • 17 of the 20 largest hotels are in Vegas...
Do you ever wonder?
How much more stress can Lake Mead take to fuel this over the top city?
Tons and tons of water flowing in almost every hotel... Mead has dropped over 100 feet in the last 10 years...

to be continued....
