Left Las Vegas2002Mar18

I am happy to be back at home, and away from the hyper-world funhouse of Las Vegas. I think Jenny is glad to be back home as well. I found myself thinking of the “User Interface” of Las Vegas and casinos, and how they compare to other “created” environments. Los Angeles’ CityWalk and Disneyworld definitely come to mind. I did a great deal of thinking about how Las Vegas exploits human desire and the human tendency to engage in magical thinking. I feel a a new essay at the edges of my thinking. The downside is that tackling casinos and Las Vegas may be too ambitious. So don’t make any wagers that I’ll get that out of my system anytime soon.
