I wonder if they'll change the name of Mandalay Bay to something else. I could see them try to rebrand the property after something like this, even if it was no fault of their own.
The geniuses who thought HRC was running a child sex ring out of the basement of a pizza shop just can't connect the dots on all this trump-Russia stuff....

You just never know. Finances stopped me from G2E this year. Was planning on attending festival with wife , She has dementia. Wanted her to have some good memories, while she still knows who I am. Meanwhile I am dying death by a 1000 cuts. Doctors want input from caretaker,( with her in room ) Can't lie ?
Always thought I was a tuff guy. Now I am not so sure,

Just venting, feel free to ignore.

Tragic news. Was the concert in the wave pool area, or is there an outdoor concert venue at Mandalay Bay? The distance from the tower to the ground is considerable. He had to be spraying fire into the crowd below rather than selecting individual targets, yet two police officers are deceased. Sad day for all of us.



The venue was across the street from Mandalay Bay on the east side of Las Vegas Blvd.

Tough! I've no sympathy for stupidity, and it starts with Vegas casinos. This happened because it was ALLOWED to happen due to NO SECURITY AT ENTRY POINTS!!!! I've mentioned that many times before. It was inevitable.



All kinds of huge gatherings with no security at entry points
Lincoln Memorial
The Mall DC
Times Square
The Pier in SFO
Mallory square in the Keys
Grant Park Chi
ect ect

To be more accurate, across the street from the Luxor, kitty corner from MB. Probably a 1,500 foot shot at minimum.

On the local news, I saw an interview and they said there was a woman at the concert who was telling people "you're all going to die today." Apparently, they escorted her out.

There's more to this than we know, and maybe more actors.
I heart Crystal Math.

Damn it this is the 2nd time a leftist went out and shot people in the recent months! Except last time was politicians this time it's civilians



I have to say I think it is repugnant to start pointing fingers at groups to blame at this early point, before the dust even had a chance to clear.

Probably just somebody with severe mental illness who acted alone. Comparisons could easily be made to the University of Texas shooting. As far as I know, the shooter in that case had no motive other than to kill as many people as possible.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

His neighbor went as far as to say that he was a professional gambler. Would not surprise me at all if someone on this site has had a run in with him before in some capacity. His brother also said he played a lot of video poker.
Assume the worst, believe no one, and make your move only when you are certain that you are unbeatable or have, at worst, exceptionally good odds in your favor.
