First glitches, now flames in Las Vegas

Yesterday, though I can't find any news stories about it, I heard on the MeCo listserv that the front desk systems at some Las Vegas hotels went down for several hours, causing some pandemonium among those looking to check in and check out. Then today we heard that the Monte Carlo hotel and casino on the strip caught on fire and had to be evacuated. If anyone has a first-hand experience with either of these events, I'd love to hear the details.

In the meantime, be safe, Las Vegans (not sure what you call them, but I like the sound of Las Vegans!). Seems like your corner of the world is under attack by gremlins.
