Fingers In The Pie???

Pornmeister/ Gardena,Cal. gaming kingpin, Larry Flynt, & “Girls Gone Wild” guru, Joe Francis, had the chutzpah to ask the Feds for $5 billion to help bail out their industry. NO, NO, NO!!!
The Mob Museum, a la Cleveland’s Rock ‘n Roll Hall of Fame, is slated to open in Vegas next year. The vintage building needs more renovations & a modest slice of the bailout pie is wanted. The project has already received Fed funding & carefully examines the facts—remember, most people think Warren Beatty’s or Ellroy’s fictional riffs are true —surrounding this dark yet fascinating segment of our nation’s history. The FBI has participated & supports the project, while local pols say it will stimulate Sin City’s economy by attracting hordes of tourists—something that, unfortunately, didn’t happen in Cleveland w/ the Rock ‘n Roll Hall of Fame. I don’t gamble–except occasionally w/ the thieves of Wall St.–& I’m not dazzled by offshoots of the Cirque du Soleil, but if I were in Las Vegas that I’d want to see.
UPDATE: The Mob Museum opened in 2012. I’ve been and it’s really great. It was my favorite thing about my trip to Vegas.
