55 Years is Ancient History

In Las Vegas apparently. How sad. One of my favorite attractions on the Strip was not the volcanos at the Mirage or the fountains at the Bellagio. It was simply those small fountains in front of the Startdust which would squirt water from one pool to another. It was simple and classy, and a little sexual. I wonder if those are gone as well. We can't salvage much in Vegas these days.

“It’s always a little sad to see these places go, but that place was so old and gross — and old and gross don’t belong in Vegas,” said Jeff Remini, 49, of Los Angeles.


The oldest casino structure on the Strip now is a part of a coffee shop at the Sahara and dates back just 55 years.

Old and gross. What an attitude.
