I just got back from las vegas. It was my sixth time there and I have always enjoyed it there. Say what you will because yes it represents decadence, extravagance, and hedonism to the extreme. But at the same time it is the city of the future with all the opportunities that it presents. I have to been other cities and I can honestly say that none has held my interest more than vegas. There is an energy here that is unmatched in most cities. There are those who say (I am sure thare are plenty)that Las vegas represents everything wrong with America. I just marvel at the fact that a virtual metropolis and arguably the number one tourist destination in this country was created in the middle of a desert.
