E-344: Comma Placement

Random Vegas 

Strip casinos on average got more than 60% of their revenue from gaming well into the 1990s (Book – At the Sands)

History gets me every time.  Especially when its epic and I’m pretty sure @VitalVegas knows that.  Look at the size of the former racetrack at Caesars Palace.  I realize golf courses take up this much land and more all the time but it really captures the imagination when you see something else in a similar scale.  Today this land is home to the Mirage and the Forum Shops.  If you look close you can see the Flamingo has its 2nd hotel tower fronting the strip.  Knowing that will also help to orient you.

@MaverickHeli, hovering over the strip like a Guardian of hope, of opportunity.  Available to all who are bold enough to simply try.  Just pick your game of chance and push the button.  Unless of course you play table games in which case, do whatever it is that you do.  In any case, Good Luck
