The energy crisis of the mid-'70s combined with the recession was worse for Las Vegas business then these terrorist acts. Please put the hotel-casino workers back on the job asap if you want to help America. This crisis has been coming for along time and Las Vegas business will be about 90 percent back to normal after Halloween. God Bless America!

Wayne Newton who is really the longest running headliner in Las Vegas was the very first big Las Vegas show that I had saw. The year was 1973 and Wayne Newton was the hottest act in town playing both dinner shows and cocktail shows. His performances ran for 2 1/2 hours. He had little competition but Liberace was a close runner-up. Other headliners were Mel Tillis, Roy Orbison, Dean Martin and Donny & Marie Osmond. Wayne Newton is a survivor and will be doing his show from The Wayne Newton Theatre at the Stardust thru Oct. 25. He's one of the best entertainers around. See him!
