Current Music: World Party, Way Down Now
From an interview and commentary on Hunter S Thompson, http://www.lasvegascitylife.com/display/inn_cover_story/cover.txt :
[....] Hard as it is for a younger generation to remember, "Sin City" used to be a grave pejorative; when commentators and editorialists likened it to Sodom and Gomorrah, they weren't being cute. Las Vegas in 1971 wasn't mainstream America, but it was what mainstream America wanted to be in its deepest, blackest heart.
