Why are we assuming that the statistics only include women in the sex trades? What about those other Las Vegas occupations that were featured in Casino, such as loan sharking, extortion, etc.? I'm sure those pay pretty well too.

Most are execs in the Casino industry. The point is that a College degree isn't necessary to get a good job and make $$$.

What other town would allow a dirtbag climber, living in a car for five years, to be able to get a good job with almost no qualifications, and move up into executive management in just a few years.

Also many are working in the fastest growing industry here in S NV....Film. and advertising.

Interesting to see where people'e minds take them.....

Fascinating! The LV metro area is extraordinary and unique in more ways than one.

I can't speak for Pasadena so I will comment on the areas of LA were I have been (my wife has family there who we visit from time to time and I passed through once on my way to Yosemtie). Sorry for the mispellings

Hollywood and West Hollywood-Getto

Santa Monica-more gap stores per sq ft than anywhere else in the US. All in nice prefab buildings

Venice beach-dirty, crowded, no place to eat-which can be said for everywhere I have been in LA. Kind of like a pre Rudy east village without the artists.

Palos Verdes-If you can afford a 2 million dollar house on the cliffs to whatch whales swim from your patio I supose it would be great. But your still going to commute 2 hrs work.

Malibu-See Palos Verdes

Bellaeare_if you can afford it and like to buy your clothes at escada wonderful enjoy.

The valley-sprawled out suburb, ie. ten lane streets and stip malls. Its fine as long as you like eating at the cheese cake factory and shopping at IKEA.

Now for broader gipes: sprawl, smog, huge highways, celebrity worship, to many fifty year old guys with pony tails and fake tans drving convertibles.

Only if you're "successful" though.

Well, if he was all done in 2.7 minutes, (if my math is correct - $45 vs $1000/hour) then on some level you could call that "successful"

"Uh yes, me and 'Mrs Smith' would like to rent a hotel room for 2.7 minutes, please?"

Check the rates. There's usually an hour or two minimum.....
(they need some way to make up for the 2.7 crowd! )
