My farewell to Binion's

I'm feeling particularly maudlin right now. My favorite casino in the world, Binion's Horseshoe, was shut down by federal marshalls last Friday. Last night I learned that it's being sold to Harrah's.

It seems silly to be this sad about a casino, but I've spent months of my life at the 'shoe over the years, and in a lot of ways it was my home away from home in Las Vegas.

Here's my farewell tribute, for anyone who is interested:
