Dec 30th 2008 6:31PM I think some of the stories on the comment section are a great way to get people to have PREVENTATIVE dental work done on a 6 month basis. Regular cleanings, flossing, brushing will save you more money in the end. Sometimes dental work from dying roots or emergency repairs are necessary and that can be more expensive, but regular hygiene would make a huge difference for most people.
Oct 7th 2008 2:11AM Christmas is coming, the geese are getting fat,
Please to put a penny in an old man's hat;
If you haven't got a penny a ha'penny will do,
If you haven't got a ha'penny, God bless you.

They want the freedom to do whatever they choose yet feel inclined to tell the rest of the world to live a life of minimalism and guilt. It isn't just Sting but I guess they have decided to make him the scapegoat.
Jun 23rd 2008 12:25PM The irony of your statement is that any differing opinion means the person has a closed mind, which, by your own words you have a closed mind as well. Everyone has their own biases. Telling someone they can't have an opinion other than your own is not very tolerant.
For a highly simplified example: I don't care for vanilla ice cream, therefore anyone who speaks highly of vanilla ice cream is wrong. But chocolate ice cream? Everyone should eat that even if they don't care for it because it is the best.
Now, since you are already forming an opinion that I must be hateful and homophobic, I personally don't care if they get married or not. Their personal decisions are theirs. I don't care much who marries who or if they are gay or not. I'm just trying to point out that by not accepting that others have different ideas, opinions, feelings and views and insisting that their ideas, opinions, feelings and views are wrong because they aren't YOUR ideas, opinions, feelings or views, is hypocritical.
Try to agree to disagree and you will be a happier person.
May 9th 2008 3:27PM That's a good idea Bob. They could do a restaurant that is Old Las Vegas memorabilia with pictures, movies, Blue Plate specials and a dress code- reliving the days when going to a casino was an Evening Out and the women dressed up and the men all looked like James Bond. Have Rat Pack music in the background and an original Ocean's 11 feel. Maybe a nice cigar bar as well.
If they do that, I want a cut for brainstorming!
May 7th 2008 9:15PM Big whoop dee doo, I hurt your itty bitty feelings about a DUMP! If the owners put some money into it, brought things up to code, replaced the crap that's there and capitalized on its history then WHY DON'T THEY? Calling it a dump because that is what it has become. Go take a look at Tripadvisor.com from people who have stayed there RECENTLY and not 50 freaking years ago and its pretty apparent from the pictures that the place isn't even safe.
Keeping it how it is now people will think, "Geezus,, living in the 50's was like living in a cesspool." Is that what you want? Do you drive the same beater you did in high school so your kids can see how you lived so they can be appreciative? Maybe you do, I hope it's smogged and not dropping parts.
No where in my original post did I say, "YAY! They are tearing it down!! WOOO!!!"
Lighten up Francis.
May 6th 2008 9:45PM The Tropicana is a dump. The owners haven't updated anything since the 80's. I'm not surprised it is finally going to be sold and demolished. I'm more surprised it has lasted this long.
