MGM Resorts, Vegas - You can feel the fear and desperation...

The hulking edifice of excess sweltering in the high desert of Nevada, is about to make their play to save their operations.

I gotta say, humans are one odd and deranged species.


Preparing for the moment when we can re-open our doors, the MGM Resorts team has been working with medical experts to develop a plan that will allow us to welcome you back.

Our “Seven-Point Safety Plan,” puts your health and safety at the center of all we do. It is a comprehensive, multi-layered approach with guidance from public health experts.

Below you will find information regarding our seven key points.

1. Vegas' very existence is an error in judgement and decision making.

It is one of mankind’s greatest follies.

2. "Whoever gets to Vegas, stays in Vegas."

Somehow I just don't see 20,000,000 people a month making the pilgrimage for awhile... Even if the airlines had the capacity.

10. Spanky the Racoon gets a free pass on even the most incredible prevarications.

Nobody bats an eye.

I try one little exaggeration and everyone gets all sciency on me?

It's not fair.

4. Casinos are a miasma of cigarette smoke, comped cocktails, and the stench of desperation.

How anyone in the industry could claim to put the health and safety of their patrons at the center of all they do is beyond me.

7. I feel for the workers

I understand that most are recent immigrants to the country. I’m sure they’d like it reopened.

6. Not gonna lie

The wife and I love going there. We've gone there enough that we get comped suites at most of MGM's and Caesar's properties. But from what my host told us, there won't likely be any shows, limited pool access, and no spa, which means most of the reason my wife likes it there is gone so I doubt she is going to want to go back any time soon. We were supposed to go in July with friends, but I am 95% sure that is not happening.

8. I feel for the workers in the City on the Plain

Much of what Las Vegas has to offer doesn’t interest me. I sympathize with the out-of-work folks who depend on tourism and gambling, but not the casino owners.

I do hope it opens up again. Las Vegas is a nice jumping-off point for people who want to see the Canyonlands national parks and the North part of the Grand Canyon. (And it’s likely to retain better airline connections than Salt Lake City.

9. The Las Vegas casinos should stay closed indefinitely.

I just do not think there is any way to make them safe. The virus can float around in the air for a long time and masks don’t stop it, only slow it down. And anyone who patronizes a casino nowadays is a fool.

11. Vegas isn't high desert,

unless you count all the people getting high there. The elevation is only 2,000 feet.
