Then there's the whole issue about what the stats would mean. Balk? Error? Would those be as dirty as I think?

I dunno. "Balk" usually means to start in to do something but then change your mind and not. Could be a very reasonable course of action in this case.

While not about Vegas, it's about Vegas.

Before the late 1950s, Reno was the gambling capital of the United States...



I kinda of wondered what happened to Reno.


Quote:

but in the last twenty years Las Vegas' rapid growth, American Airlines' 2000 buyout of Reno Air and the growth of Indian gambling gaming in California have reduced its business. Older casinos were either torn down (Mapes Hotel, Fitzgerald's Nevada Club, Primadonna, Horseshoe Club, Harold's Club, Palace Club) or smaller casinos like the Comstock, Sundowner, Golden Phoenix, Kings Inn, Money Tree, Virginian, and Riverboat were either closed or were converted into condos

(Oscar)Goodman is the only major city mayor in history to be succeeded by his spouse.

I find that hard to believe, that he's the only one.

But that's what it says here
