I have been coming to Las Vegas for the past 25 years, and never have I been so disappointed in my life as I was this past trip at the end of April.

There were people passed out on the sidewalks and people begging for money everywhere.

What has happened to your town? It wasn’t quite this bad when I was there in November. I usually come two times a year, but I think I will go to Reno or Atlantic City on my next trip.

I miss the old Las Vegas.
