Congrats Hunter!

I just started visiting the site and catching up on the podcasts (listening to one now in fact). I love what you're doing. Keep up the fantastic, extensive and hard work! I'm sure I speak for everyone saying we appreciate it.

Thanks for the kind words.

It's a lot of fun to do this stuff and if it weren't for the readers and folks leaving comments, it wouldn't be as interesting to thanks to you guys too!

That page was an... Interesting read. I agree with him that Riviera is a bigger blotch on the Strip than Circus-Circus. I can at least play some machines at Tropicana when I want to, but the Riviera is nasty. And even the sixty-something folks who turned off the lights at Stardust and rode off into retirement kept the place cleaner in it's final weeks than I've EVER seen the Riv.

The love affair with Wynn I don't understand quite so much, but I believe it's a combination of going there so much and my local's sense of shame at spending $6 on a $3.25 bag of potato chips that prevents me from ever properly enjoying myself there.

Congrats Hunter, well deserved too, while its nice to be recognized by the public at large its not too sniffy to be recognized by your peers, and what a write up they did on you, daily reading eh??

Seriously well deserved and you have a lot to be proud of.

Coming to you stuck on the crappy work shift and hoping to be more active soon.....

Congrats Hunter! I was really surprised you didn't get the people's choice, but its still great that you got the editor's choice.
Again Congratulations!

The people are hard to please... I'm pretty sure if it wasn't for Mike E. posts, people would have thought we were the clear winner. :-)

Just kidding of course. Thanks for the kind words.

Hunter, you deserved more awards. I went through all the Trippies and realized I haven't set foot inside Circus Circus in 20 years. I don't think I've missed anything. Whatever posessed the Trippies to use purple print on a black background? Not exactly reader-friendly.

Sweet... I guess the plebes don't quite 'get it' yet, but it's nice to see that those 'in the know' are recognizing your efforts, as well as those of your regular contributors (detroit & the mikes, et al)

Keep up the 'good work' and I will continue to 'praise' the site everywhere I go! :)
