Lonnie Hammargren is the last of a dying breed, the wild Nevadan, a true maverick. He hails from a time before homeowners associations and corporate gaming executives.. He comes from a time when Las Vegas was still a small town full of friendly neighbors and everyone said howdy at the Helldorado Parade. He comes from a time when a professional eccentric with a penchant for hyperbole could still be a viable political candidate. When he rests in his wine cellar tomb, Nevada will be a less interesting and exciting place.
