I listened to the podcast tonight and can't believe how the Harrah's story hasn't made front page news. The fact that Harrah's didn't only have recent code violations with renovations, but violations that go back to the 90's is astounding. There should be an 8 figure fine against Harrah's if all of this is true. Las Vegas and Nevada better get out of the casino's pockets and start to do some real oversight before a major tragedy strikes a hotel from corners being cut. Thanks for the podcast.

I'm concerned about how Frazetta left Harrah's. My understanding is that he was caught stealing ligh bulbs. A small item, maybe, but stealing is stealing. I've never seen where he denied it or claimed to be framed. Which makes me wonder what kind of personality places themself in a position to be fired with cause when they know they are under a microscope.
Regardless, Frazetta clearly has an axe to grind and you gave him an extremely large wheel to grind it on. Some direct questioning of Frazetta's motives would have given a better sense of balance to an otherwise excellent pod cast.

Thanks for the comment.

Frazetta claims he had permission to borrow the bulbs to take home to test. I have no way to verify that and I agree that stealing is stealing no matter what the size.

Still, the problems at Harrah's are well documented by the County and the RJ no matter what we think of Frazetta. I don't care if Bin Laden reported them, these are still huge issues for Harrah's, other companies and the county.

frazetta had an axe to grind, because he was forced to work with his supervisors daughter. she recieved the same pay as him, but did not go through an appreticeship for the job. he used the safety violations as an excuse to get revenge on t. adams.
