Frontier Hotel 1942-2007

"This is the end result of all the bright lights... and the comp trips, of all the champagne... and free hotel suites,
and all the broads and all the booze. It's all been arranged just for us to get your money.
That's the truth about Las Vegas. We're the only winners. The players don't stand a chance. "

-- Sam "Ace" Rothstein, Casino, 1995

A stroll down the Las Vegas Strip...

A nice afternoon stroll the Las Vegas can be quite amusing and very interesting. The Las Vegas Strip is becoming much like Venice Beach, CA. If you have been to Venice Beach, then you know what I am talking about.
Up and down the Strip are clowns like this guy, who because of their "1st Amendment" rights are allowed to stand on the sidewalk and pass out what I call "porn cards." Most of these guys passing out these cards are Hispanic and do not speak English. It's probably safe to assume that their immigration status is questionable.

These cards have photos of naked women on them and of course a phone #. The woman on the card (or someone that looks like her) will then come to your hotel room and be your "escort" for a couple hours -- of course there is a fee for this service.


These assholes show no discretion when passing out these cards. They "snap" the cards as they are handing them out. Any male who looks over 18 is offered a card. It does not matter if you are holding hands with your wife or you are walking with your family, if you get near one of these guys they will hit you up with a card. Usually there is a line of 10-20 of them crowding the sidewalks and forcing these cards on any male who comes near them. Of course many of these cards (sometimes hundreds) just end up on the sidewalk and street -- and very accessible to any children walking with their parents.
