  1. My dad lived in Vegas when I was a kid. I visited for a month in ’74. That was Vegas, baby. Carson was still playing weekends at the Sahara (which, btw, is closing for good in May.) Vegas today is nothing but a glorified mall with none of the kitschy charm of the old days.

The strip has changed in thirty years of course, but it is not all about the strip for the people that live here. I have complaints about a lot of things concerning Las Vegas but as a native I am amazed to find I get defensive when Las Vegas is criticized. Las Vegas is a good place to live.
