For the first time since I've moved to Las Vegas over a month ago I had the time to get out and do a coupon run with my new ACG and LVA books. Picked up the ACG when I got here a month ago and picked up the LVA a couple of days ago while out and about on my scooter. Got the chance to talk to Anthony Curtis for a few minutes. Which was nice. He said he remembered meeting me a long long time ago when Jean Scott had her Frugal 2 signing at The Palms. Anyway I took my book downtown today to redeem the Fremont Street Casino coupons and lo and behold as I was coming back from redeeming all the coupons the pickers had set up shop in front of the D and some were getting ready to stage in front of the El Cortez. Being in a union myself I wish them the best of luck in getting a fair contract and since they had set up in front of The D and I was going to go in to play some sigma derby I am NOT a scab so I didn't cross the picket line. Lets hope this ends promptly so it can go back to business as usual downtown.
