    As usual, I know a bunch of this stuff from reading the blog. As usual, there’s info I don’t know anything about because I don’t read Twitter very often. I sometimes wonder if Scott ever sets his phone down. It seems like he tweets 1,000 times per day. I have to rely on an old-fashioned podcast to keep up.

    I enjoy this site and the information you post. Just some friendly unsolicited advice: try not to let the listeners hear your mouth open every time it does.

    Ya Scott We love you so much “BUT” change how you do things so we who enjoy your feeds can enjoy them. LMAO. Great work once again. BTW…Just got back from a visit for a few days downtown and a few days uptown. The drink shortage seems to have been solved. I found drinks and beers flowing fast when at any slot or video poker machine. Downtown, MGM, Ceasars, etc…Prompt and courteous service without any judging of how much was being played. So noticeably better than 3 months ago I thought to mention it.
