Word just broke that metro cops are at the Stardust looking into a suspected expolisve device at the Stardust here on the LV Strip.

I think they closed the strip from the Fremont to Sahara Ave.

More to come...

Well, there's a lot of "strange" things like devices on the strip.

BTW, remember the 3 day Easter blackout at the Bellagio? Have they ever spilled the beans on the "why" that happened? Rumors of sabotage...

STRIP CLOSED BECAUSE OF MISTAKE

The Las Vegas Strip shut down, between Spring Mountain & Cathedral, for more than an hour today because of a possible bomb threat. As Action News was the first to report, it turns out, a suspicious device was only an antenna that fell off a vehicle. That word from the Las Vegas Fire Department

Doug, for those of us who have never been to LV, what does "protecting their glazing" mean?

"a suspicious device was only an antenna that fell off a vehicle."

Unbelievable.

Goodman should be getting some angry calls from the venues.

You realize carp is an intention misspelling, right? I wasn't referring to fish, but things that smell equally awful (offal, actually.)

The glazing is the glass. As some of you remember, there was a scathing report about the UN bombing in Baghdad. Had they installed security window film that holds the glass in the frame, several lives could have been saved.

Glass is a big killer in explosions. It rips people to shreds. The company with which I do consulting work is protecting the buildings in the green zone in Baghdad.

Nothing is blast proof. The window film manufactured by the company with which I do consulting work is the state of the art in the world.

Las Vegas is the epitome of Western decadence and a prime target for Islamists.

I was there in May and ate at the buffet at the Aladdin. I purposefully showed the bottom of my shoe while sitting at my table, to further enhance the decadent reputation of the city.
