'Plaint of the Playwright

[ Monday, April 29, 2002 ]

Continuing the tradition of having Buck write my weblog entries for me, is a postcard I just got.

And don't say "Vegas, Baby."

Don't be that guy.

That guy's a tool.

Las Vegas.  The Gaming Capital Of The World.

"Little-known Las Vegas Facts (#12 in a series)

In 1956, at the height of the Estes Kefauver hearings exploring mob activity in Las Vegas, the city went through 8 mayors in the space of a year! From Mayor Anderson, whose bullet-riddled body was officially labeled a 'shaving accident,' to Mayor Rich, who was missing for 2 weeks before his body was found staked to an anthill in the desert, to Mayor Grant, whose foot was found protruding from a recently re-cemented section of Hoover Dam, their sacrifice made for a colorful period of Las Vegas history!

Love, Buck."
