  1. Wah-Hoo!!! Las Vegas tops a list for something good. Now we can forget about the foreclosures, unemployment and education because, for tonight, we are the party capital of the world.

    Happy New Year and here's to hoping we survive 2011.

  2. Las Vegas is and remains the ultimate tourist destination by far. Macau took a piece of the cake recently and is still growing at fast pace. However, this is only one Las Vegas on this planet. That's a fact.
    There are some things that are not perfect, and some issues, and things that people whish should be changed. However, in summary, I agree with this comment.
    Happy New Year, Las Vegas :)
