Mayor Oscar Goodman’s plan to bring a Mob Museum to downtown Las Vegas was recently mugged in Congress when its $50 million price tag was deemed an inappropriate use of stimulus funds.
Since then, a recent column on the subject has been generating reams of response from readers. Here’s one from Jeff Kennedy:
