Graffiti on an abandoned Western Motel and Casino in beautiful downtown Las Vegas
It’s amazing that the amount of news that happens in the world every day always just exactly fits the newspaper.
There was no insignia on this truck, parked in the middle of the desert near Area 51. Maybe it was used to transport alien bodies for dissection?
“Parents and schools should place great emphasis on the idea that it is all right to be different. Racism and all the other ‘isms’ grow from primitive tribalism, the instinctive hostility against those of another tribe, race, religion, nationality, class or whatever. You are a lucky child if your parents taught you to accept diversity.”
According to the park website, “about 5 people” have died due to falls from Angels Landing in the 100 years since the park was established. About 5? Yeah, maybe last week! This is the most dangerous hike I have ever attempted. Hanging off the side of a cliff by a chain while trying to find a foothold is not my idea of fun.
Only five deaths?
You’ve got to be kidding me.
I saw the film “Shane” when I was just a kid. The child actor was Brandon De Wilde. Since that day, I wanted to be him, until I found out he was killed in a car accident when he was only thirty.
The image above reminds me of that film.
He’s the man because, let’s face it, he’d make an ugly woman!
(Maybe if he shaved?)
Since at least 1100 A.D., the Southern Paiute lived across southeastern Nevada and neighboring states. To survive the desert, they drank from springs, hunted wild game and harvested plants.
Today, the Southern Paiutes operate the Las Vegas Paiute Golf Resort. In addition, the Moapa Paiute Travel Plaza with its 2,500-square-foot casino and fireworks store greets visitors on their way to Valley of Fire State Park.
The Moapa Paiutes also are developing the first large-scale solar project on tribal land, which will provide tribal revenue and jobs.
