OK. All 130 of the Vegas photos are now up, but on the Flickr section instead of the Media Blog. Easier that way. Keep in mind they are all from my phone – so they have a lovely crappy burned out look to them.

Click over there on the sidebar on Flikr and they’ll pop right up fer ya. Enjoy!

A small payback:

A Senator who supported the ruling allowing private land to be taken through eminent domain for the use of commercial interests faces possibly losing his own land under the same law. Seems a nice hotel on that spot would be a great public benefit.

(I might add that this seems more of a direct attack on that particular senator for supporting the ruling than the result of a developer with a hotel plan. But if they can get it done, I’ll contribute to the funding of the hotel…)

Now if we could get Congress members to enlist all their children in the armed forces, we could be heading for some real representational government.

Seen at Coudal.
