Westword does Vegas, shit gets predictably fear and loathing

In a way, Las Vegas is like America turned up to 11: Loud, weird and relentlessly excessive, Vegas is kind of like the splatter pattern that resulted when God balled up everything hilarious and awful about these great United States and hurled it at the most barren part of the desert. There it grows like a parasite, consuming all that is wholesome and good and spitting it back out as a mutant version of itself, twisted and spiritually devoid. That said, it's also pretty awesome.
