  1. I hope you didn't waste alot of money paying Mr. Gehry for such a silly design instead of using it for research, patient care, patient financial help.... - it looks like it's already fallen down in an earthquake or something. I'm just saying...

  2. Is it possible that those who should know, do not know...people with brain conditions experience a lot of confusion. Come on Vegas get a grip! People without any problem would feel confused just looking at this MESS!
