Back to Las Vegas, in a very different line of work

When I moved from Las Vegas to Ames, Iowa, three years ago, several people told me, “You’ll be back.” At the time I thought it was a rather presumptuous prediction, built on the idea that Las Vegas is such a desirable place to live that I would be disappointed anywhere else. But here I am, three years later, back in Las Vegas, and happy to be here.

After 25 years in the newspaper business, I have leaped into a whole new industry. I’m the director of content development for the Mob Museum in downtown Las Vegas. Although museums are very different from newspapers, I think my skills and experience translate well into what I am doing now. I am working on a bunch of different things but they all revolve around history and storytelling.

I intend to continue writing books and articles, but my primary focus will be on contributing in whatever ways I can to improve and grow the museum. The possibilities are vast, exciting and daunting. There is no shortage of work to do and ideas to pursue.

I also hope to revive this blog a bit after a long period of inactivity.

    The post above is from a FBI spook who specializes in using words for weapons! What his interest in you is I don’t know but that sort of scrambled idioticy is not without purpose. I think he’s the same one who for the last 30 years has harassed anyone who was interested in the genetic line of Howard Hughes. I think he is the same one who terrorised Jean Peter’s sister and family by pretending to have CIA implants in his head and getting messages from Howard in the grave. All this was intended to create adversion to anyone wanting to make honest inquiry into howard’s genetic background. His interest in you is interesting but I have traced his emails to certain people at Howard Hughes Medical Instuites. He uses different names but they usually have Jon, Johnathan, or something similar for a first name.
