Excerpt from "Tales From Fremont Street"

Las Vegas is a city of heat and passion.

A city where devilry runs hand in hand with revelry...

...Where fate throws dice with fortune's breathy kiss, and only the sun blasted pavement remembers our sins.

Las Vegas is a graveyard for dreams and a twinkling lightshow of basest impulses.

A playground for those who've forgotten where they want to be, and don't want to remember where they might've gone.

Las Vegas is a one night stand.
