Ever wonder what a lux condo on the Las Vegas Strip looks like? This is what you get for $1 million...

This video is a kind of hidden, sloppy camera shot of a group of people escorting a drunk women to her room, where there were more drunk women. Only in Las Vegas, now on video.
Runway Show by Marciano at the Fashionshow Mall in Las Vegas is just a slice of life if you're in the fashion business in this town.
"Vegas waiters aren't being rude,
they're just saving water.
Remember, this is a desert.
Water is served by request only
at participating restaurants."

The girl, who was identified by the Clark County coroner's office Friday as Jorden Jackson, died of a gunshot wound to the chest in what has been ruled an accident.”
But once Nevada gets through 2009 — when unemployment will fluctuate between 9 percent and 10 percent, it can exhale and expect better days, says Schwer, director of UNLV’s Center for Business and Economic Research.
In November the state recorded a 24-year-high unemployment rate of 8 percent, up from 7.7 percent the previous month, according to the Labor Statistics Bureau. The national unemployment rate in November was 6.7 percent.
In October, state economists had forecast the unemployment rate at 8.2 percent at the start of the new year and peaking at 8.8 percent by the end of 2009.”
And this is the commercial with Wynn sitting at the top of his new hotel, Encore. Really. That's him.
I have to admit I didn't believe that was Las Vegas Real Estate Developer Steve Wynn sitting atop his new hotel Encore, but one look at this video convinced me it was him. I first saw the video at the website of the Las Vegas Sun, which reports:
"The television commercial in which Wynn perches atop his new copper-colored hotel like it’s a billion-dollar lawn chair is no product of Hollywood trickery.
In the Encore ad, Wynn reprises the commercial he did for Wynn Las Vegas, in which he stood atop that hotel.
As proof Wynn was really there, the hotel prepared a behind-the-scenes video showing the preparations for the shoot on and above the 48-story hotel. Wynn rehearses his lines with director Brett Ratner (“Rush Hour,” “X-Men: The Last Stand”). The casino developer is shown walking up the building’s sloping rooftop and then seated at its pinnacle with his legs crossed and dangling 675 feet above the ground. A camera-carrying chopper hovers nearby.
“This should lay the question to rest,” the narrator says. “Yes, Steve really was on the building.”"
I've got to give it to Steve. That took guts -- I guess that's how he managed to stay on top of the Las Vegas Hotel game.
Gibbons overwhelmingly favors Northern Nevadans in his appointments to top salaried administrative posts — including the controversial attempted appointment of Kirk Montero of Reno as tourism chief.
Few residents of Clark County, home to 70 percent of the state’s population, serve in the governor’s Cabinet or in senior staff positions.
His chief of staff, Josh Hicks; assistant chief of staff, Mendy Elliott; and chief counsel, Chris Nielsen, are from the Reno-Carson City area. Until November, Gibbons’ communications director was a Northern Nevadan, Ben Kieckhefer.”
-- Seems Illinois isn't the only state with a Governor problem.
