Jon went to Las Vegas...
...for the Live Design International conference and tradeshow, while Susan went to the National Science Foundation in Arlington. On the flight home Susan read an interesting article about Harry Reid in the New Yorker...possibly just at the same time Jon was taking photographs of what she was reading about: On the Strip, construction of one enormous new casino complex, the Echelon, abruptly stopped, leaving a very large vacant lot with the beginnings of a steel-girder skeleton rising from the ground. Another casino, the Fontainebleau, was halted at a later stage of construction; Carl Icahn recently bought it, for ten cents on the dollar, but has yet to resume building.
