American Institutions #6 : Las Vegas

A Fertile Desert

Human beings may have been invented by water to transport it uphill, but when there’s a sea of money, water is quite capable of flowing uphill all by itself. The biggest and most famous sea of money is smack bang in the middle of the Nevada desert. Where else can you witness a performing pack of rats, a living legend, a mob execution and a nuclear test, whilst watching your life float away on a river of craps, slots and venereal disease. Viva Las Vegas.
