I am in Las Vegas helping one of my old buddies run a trade show booth. When I was reading the paper, Las Vegas is worried about how they only have a service industry for tourism and don't have manufacturing. It is just like Carbondale.
It has been 7 years since I have been to Vegas and the place is growing like a weed. The airport is jammed, the hotels are getting bigger and fancier and there are people everywhere.
More when I'm back in town.
