Siz­ing up Ve­gas

Los Angeles Times - - TRAVEL -

The let­ter writer [“Ve­gas An­i­mals,” June 14] who bashed the ar­ti­cle “Stroller-friendly Ve­gas” [May 31] needs to re­al­ize what Ve­gas is all about.

Ve­gas is not a meet­ing place for Sun­day wor­shipers, nor is it an ex­ten­sion of higher learn­ing (ex­cept if you are learn­ing how to count cards).

Ve­gas is ev­ery­thing one can think of that is slightly mis­chievous, on the verge of be­ing im­moral and tons of fun. The let­ter writer men­tions dol­phins and sharks in Ve­gas. Any­thing in Ve­gas that is con­trary to typ­i­cal be­hav­ior is there to at­tract peo­ple to visit and part with their money.

The orig­i­nal ar­ti­cle pro­vided some ac­tiv­i­ties and places where peo­ple with kids can go to and be en­ter­tained and have fun sans the gam­bling scene.

If the kids’ ac­tiv­i­ties listed in the ar­ti­cle are not suf­fi­cient per the par­ent’s agenda, the let­ter writer’s ad­vice to stay home should be fol­lowed. No one is twist­ing arms to force at­ten­dance in Sin City. BILL SPI­TAL­NICK New­port Beach
