    I didn't know the same thing happened at Caesars on Tuesday. I always worry that these incidents will one day have them lock off the Cosmo terraces like they did at Palms Place.

    He just wants attention. If he was serious, he'd head for the laundry chute......

    I won a big football bet at the D Sports Book.

    Here's a story. I did a lot of safety enforcement on my job. I was standing right there when they were lifting the D sign into place. One of the construction guys had his hard hat on backwards. I just blurted out "Yo, spin that hat!". What do you know, he reached up and turned it around the right way.

    At these point, most of us are just in competition for the best seat at the bar in hell.

    So I kinda feel bad but all I can think about is that I hope this mess has cleared out by 7pm when we are due to check in!! Do I need to stand in the "doomed to hell" line?!?

    Maybe these people are semi-serious gamblers, and hate how loud they play the music?

    Is that high enough to kill yourself? Seems like it would just make a helluva mess and hurt really, really bad.

    We just got home from Vegas and thank goodness I got a message from my son, before I heard the news. My last words when saying goodbye to him last night as he headed to his room at The D were to not stay up all night gambling and lose all your money.

    He checked out of The D this morning (the normal way - at the front desk....) Now he's just hanging around downtown Vegas waiting for the situation to end so he can get his vehicle out of the parkade. They've closed it down to all traffic.

    It's weird as we were just in the parkade a couple days ago. This was the morning after the laundry chute situation and we were wondering if she committed suicide. I looked over the edge on the 7th floor on the parkade and commented it would be easy to jump from there since it's not screened in. The wall is only about 3 feet high and I'm pretty sure you wouldn't survive.

    Ya, it's sure been a rough week for the D.

    Music trivia: The Van Halen song 'Jump' was written by David Lee Roth after he watched some guy doing the same thing, standing on the side of a building, while hoardes of people watched, and teams of responders tried to talk a suicidal man from the ledge.

    He got tired of watching and wrote the line 'Might as well jump'.

    It's still going on... my son says The D is trying to find rooms for guests who can't leave.

    More from Vital Vegas https://twitter.com/VitalVegas

    Stand-off is causing major disruption of downtown businesses--hotel guests missing flights, can't get access to vehicles, entrances blocked.

    Related: Cost of police and rescue personnel dealing with this guy's drama is estimated at $20,000 per hour.

    Many people with depression in this world. Unfortunately, Vegas is probably one of the worst places for them.

    I actually hadn't thought of people needing to leave the area. What a mess!
