Right, and pawn shops in vegas are computerized so they can't be used to fence stolen property. Of course the police don't assign the same rules to pawn shops as they would to individuals who receive stolen property.

Wow, this town gets more stupid every day. BTW, to the author of this scribble, "silicon valley" is not the mother of all tech and everyone that comes from there is not tech and creating another social wannabe website is not high tech. Geez.

Just more and more of the same nonsense. What you do is social media yourself to death, prop yourself up like you're the messiah, buy up properties and then sell out. LV seems to be the mecca for these types of stories. Hsieh is nothing more than a well crafted prop. What does anybody really know about this guy or zappos (btw, zappos sucks as a place to work and have a family)? The people who live here are insanely undereducated and putting in a dog park isn't going to improve anything. Everything has a downside and five-ten years from now lv is going to have more blight in and around downtown than ever before. Oh and then what will people be saying? But, if you keep electing nits in office like goodman and coffin, this is what you can expect.

This is the most screwed up place I've ever lived. They want to use tax dollars to give out grants and loans to prop up hsieh's vision of downtown??? What? I know a guy who bought one of those seedy hotels at the end of freemont just to sell it later. So great while my tax dollars are going to improve his lot, the infrastructure in my neighborhood, like gas lines, just goes to crap.

The city is not doing much of anything except pushing the blight outwards while at the same time lining the pockets of the business people who squeeze into the middle.

I've lived most of my life in tech central areas and lv is not and will not attract high technology companies w/o a university system. unlv is not ut, austin. All you people who are supporting hsieh's vision of attracting the millenials are just nuts.
