Vegas the Sad Story? Say It Ain't So!

Yep, Joel Stein feels a little sorry for us... OK, he really doesn't. But still, the latest Time cover story on Las Vegas isn't too flattering. But hey, I can't help it. I still have hope we'll turn the corner.

I hardly ever agree with Sheldon Adelson on anything, but I hope (to a certain extent) he's right when he says:

"There's no way this world will change. There's no way people are going to stop doing things they want to do ... People aren't going to say, 'I'm going to see Old Faithful or the redwoods instead of taking a trip to Vegas. Or I'll go to Cape Cod with a book.' I don't think they're going to do that. I used to fish. I don't want to go back," he says. "That's the nature of people. It's like the old song, How you going to keep them down on the farm once they've been to gay Paris?"

Hey, a lot of people have lost money in the past when betting against Vegas. Let's hope this old adage holds true.
