Las Vegas - Deep Dark Secret . . .

Middle-aged men with expense accounts...
Every year 40 million odd usually pudgy guys visiting Babylon to sell or buy thingees and gadgets while spending cash like movie stars and doing things that really need to stay in Vegas.
There is little fabulous about the place, sure the casino hotels are magnificent, and yes 6 of the top 10 rated USA restaurants are in the city, but really Vegas is no more that a place for the ultimate expressions of greed, avarice, immorality, desperation and human weakness.
I've been coming here every year for likely 10 years or more, and it's gotten so that I don't put a nickle in a slot machine and don't bother leaving my hotel.
I do my business and leave.
I guess I won't get that job writing articles for the Tourist Bureau.
