Quotes:
The night before I left Las Vegas I walked out in the desert to look at the moon. There was a jeweled city on the horizon, spires rising in the night, but the jewels were diadems of electric and the spires were the neon of signs ten stories high.
-- An American Dream
Norman Mailer

There is always a sneer in Las Vegas. The mountains around it sneer. The desert sneers. And arrogant in the middle of its wide valley, dominating those diligent sprawling suburbs, the downtown city sneers like anything.
-- Journeys
Jan Morris

Las Vegas is the world capital of obesity. You can buy chocolate by the yard or the bucket at the Candy Jar in town, and there are more fat people here at any one time than there are Muslims in Mecca.
-- Journeys
Jan Morris

Nevada is a good place to learn about space. Outside of Las Vegas, Reno and Carson City, it is empty.
