Its a shame, very nice guy. And, he has been working here since the 50s, so he saw AC transition from a non-casino city to its current form so he always has interesting perspectives on change.

But he certainly deserves to retire, he has been working for a very long time.

I agree that he's a very nice guy. I've already missed Mr. Pinky. The Borg's food court is not the same without him now. "The Pinky's Corner" @ the food court was dismantled, and it's eradicated without a trace of "The Pinky's Corner".


Believe it or not...I was going to ask Mr. Pinky to do a radio interview on AC's card counters, who wanted to air their grievances, i.e., the casinos' abuses of patron rights.

I changed my mind when I saw Borg's managers dropped by "The Pinky's Corner". They handed Mr. Pinky a bunch of paperwork for Borg's commercials and advertisements. I googled to find out that a radio station made big bucks from sponsors such as casinos. Here is a quote:

Radio Advertising Rate...
The estimated ad rate for the radio station is $1,405.00. Note: Individual radio station rates are not readily available. Our estimates are based on regional averages and may be very inaccurate. Advertising rate estimates are typically for a 30 second spot.

I'm OK with Corps which pick and choose clienteles. Both insurance companies and casinos have the right to pick and choose customers. They may keep profitable ones and kicked out the rest. But, I'm not OK with a casino supervisor who says counting cards... is like stealing food from a buffet (a foodlifting offense), or video-taping a movie in a cinema (a piracy offense).
