    August 28th, 2015

    Editor’s Note: As Robin Leach spends family time in La Jolla, Calif., after returning from his annual Italian travels, many of our Strip personalities have stepped forward in his absence to pen their words of wisdom.

    We continue today with guest columns from Jane Cox, who knows everything about beauty and relaxation at Bathhouse Spa in Delano Las Vegas and Spa at Mandalay Bay, and Buck Hujabre, new to “Jersey Boys” at Paris Las Vegas. Here’s Buck, who juggles real estate by day and the hit musical by night:

    “What are you going to fall back on?” I am asked that question a lot. The second most common question I get is, “How did you get into...

    Biden Sees What We All See: Wall Street Connections and Hillary

    August 28th, 2015

    Vice President Joe Biden is considering a 2016 run for the White House. One advantage he already has is realizing Hillary Clinton’s Wall Street connections, reported the Huffington Post.

    Biden’s decision to run for president “will be driven. . . by a belief that Hillary Clinton’s background won’t allow her to be a credible messenger when it comes to income inequality.” While the Republican candidates push the issues from the daily headlines, the Democratic candidates have been campaign on more heavy issues like income inequality and corporate crime.

    Clinton’s took thousands of dollars in speaking fees to address groups of Wall Street...

    Banksy’s ‘Dismaland’ now has its own darkly comic commercial

    August 27th, 2015

    Conceptual street artist Banksys dystopian bemusement park is open for business in Weston-super-Mare, England, and in case you need any more reason to visit Somerset in August (or much of September), Dismaland now has its very own commercial. Tim Burton would be proud. It opens in what looks like the set of the Dursley house from the Harry Potter films, with a soundtrack ripped from the pages of a Danny Elfman score. Then you get a brief tour of the actual park itself, featuring homages to security theater, Ferguson, Europes migrant crisis, a paparazzi-swarmed Cinderella death tableau, and other similarly family-friendly fare. Enjoy it while you can — Dismaland is scheduled to close...

    Im convinced that 95 percent of the citizens of Israel want to form beautiful, healthy, normal families and have grandchildren. A healthy person, a normal person, that is what he wants, Smotrich told Galei Israel Radio, as an explanation as to why accepting LGBT people in society is dangerous.

    According to Smotrich, many senior members of the Israeli media are homosexual, and as such they hold the microphone and decide for all of us what we should think and what we should say.

    LGBT people, he said, have great...
