Since I am a Nevada geek…this is a [Classic] Dave Barry that I MUST share…now…

“It’s very difficult to resist slot machines, and Las Vegas [or Laughlin…or Stateline…or…???] [are] designed so that you can’t walk anywhere without encountering dozens of them. If you got seriously injured in Las Vegas [or Laughlin…or Stateline…or…???], and medical personnel rushed you to the hospital, I bet they’d wheel your stretcher past a row of slot machines on the way to the operating room. And even if your arm had become detached, it would leap off the stretcher by itself and yank on a handle. Such is the power of the slots [in Vegas, Laughlin, Stateline or…anywhere NEVADA).”

(I [pretty much] know this to be a fact.)
