Didn't want this in the soapbox but wanted to share.

I'm in Las Vegas this week for a conference and staying at Mandalay Bay. The atmosphere is subdued as you might expect but it seems like people are interacting more than I remember in the past few trips here. Then again, we're at a conference.

Here are some pics...first is view of strip...

(Not sure if attachment will work as expected. If not I will upload and link.)

Concert venue. I'm ten floors lower and at a different angle. Back of stage is on right side of pic. His room had a side view. Nowhere to hide. Horrible.

Thanks for sharing. Makes me a little sick to think about what it was like for the people there that night.

Thanks, made sure to talk to as many casino workers, uber drivers, etc. as possible. One said: "for us this is a crazy tragedy that just happened but people are walking around like nothing happened ".

I explained that I really didn't have a choice. Company paid long ago and I was sent. He was understanding and it was a good conversation.

For my conservative peeps...not one person that I personally talked to called for increased gun control.

After a week of food and drinks for free anywhere I turned, it has been more like "fatman" on my morning run every day since I got home!
