    The traditional trade between card-passer and tourist goes something like this: Card-passer slaps card on hand in front of a passer-by. Passer-by takes card. Passer-by keeps walking, then looks at card, noticing it is for “dancers” to visit your room. Passer-by drops card and walks on.

    With this occurring several hundred times a day, the cards pile up on sidewalks and in the gutters along Las Vegas Boulevard.

    I blame the people who throw them on the ground.

    I noticed a lot fewer slappers on my strip stay last week, and a lot less littering. Even if it's only in the "warning" phase, it already appears to be making a big difference.

    This topic has been beaten around the bush a bit, but.. I just thought of a way to thin down the slapper problem.

    Get some IRS agents out there to track down where the money goes. From cash payments to the slappers, to cash for the "ladies" and all the way around. Pretty sure there is lots of unreported income there.

    There is nothing as bad as dealing with the IRS.

    They are in the same location every night.
    All that needs to be done is to place a large trash can about 20 feet north and south of them with a large sign saying "Place cards here."
