Excellent episode; it was informative and entertaining. Thank you all for doing the show on an irregular basis. The sound quality is much improved and makes it much easier to listen to while in a slightly noisy environment.
Regarding PENN and Mr. Marnell; I think it could a win-win situation for both parties if he were retained at the M. Provided egos don't get in the way, on both sides.
Marnell IS the face and mind behind the M, which is a dynamic property and would be a home run in other economic times. I think he is a forward thinker who could bring new ideas about the casino biz in Nevada. Couple that with his being from a long term and very highly regarded family in Las Vegas (along with his youth and good looks) and you have a man with a lot of plusses for PENN. He could also be the Nevada face of the company, if the egos were comfortable with it. Nevada can be very hard on outsiders, something Isle of Capri or MTR could attest to.
