Mob Museum


Las Vegas plans to open a Mob Museum. And I say it is about time. The mob scene is part of the history of Las Vegas and officials here have always tried to ingore that past in hopes it would go away. Las Vegas mobsters were a colorful lot and are just as important to Las Vegas history as Al Capone is to Chicago.

Wow. Fantastic monster there. The urbanity monster striding forth, as it does in most cities of the world. Nice hand-drawn banner too. Something like this image, http://EN.WahooArt.com/A55A04/w.nsf/OPRA/BRUE-7Z9RQ8 , by French painter Fernand Léger, maybe effective painted large on a wall too, acknowledged as a copy of course. It can be seen at wahooart.com and a canvas print of it can be ordered from there.
