Wheel of Fortune
Vegas is the American dream at it's shiniest and most hollow. When people always ask me why I like Vegas and why I enjoy traveling there, it's so fake and shallow, I say that it's a lesson in culture for me and I enjoy seeing people behave exactly as they've always wanted to. There's an honesty to it that contradicts the fantasy of it and I like that a lot.
Las Vegas has been a den of vice since the 1930's when workers from around the world came to build the hoover dam but the man who started it's allure and style was gangster Bugsy Siegel who built the Flamingo Hotel. Although he never enjoyed the fruits of nefarious labor, it started a city that was owned and controlled by the mob from the get go. Now Vegas is like a slightly more PG-R rated Disneyland but if you pay attention you can see old Vegas all around you and if you wander off the strip you might see some causalities of that American dream of over indulgence.
