No telling what’s being thought of in the mind of a lunatic

Viva Las Vegas

So today I was reading the Sunday newspaper, and I came across this article. Basically, it’s about a county in Pennsylvania flyover country. Just some more blahblah about the HUSSEIN RECESSION. And while the bit about a local public official encouraging residents to plant (crisis?) gardens gave me a flashback…

Fulton County commissioners recently advised residents to plant gardens to help get through the tough times.

…what really got my attention was this part at the end.

John Piper, the former receiving clerk at General Fasteners, has a plan. He may withdraw all the money he had saved in his 401(k) — $1,100 — “put myself on a bus” and head to Las Vegas to look for work.

“It scares me,” Piper said. “But I’ve got to make it one way or another.”

Las Vegas? The Las Vegas that is experiencing one of the worst economic downturns in the ENTIRE COUNTRY? That Las Vegas?
