Comments & Discussion:

I have some questions
1) Does the Encore really have hot maids in sexy outfits? If so I need to make a reservation
2) I didn't know you (Chuck) liked Hunter S. as much I do. I didn't know anyone did. I'm reading his book "Kingdom of Fear" right now. Of course parts of it make no sense, but it's good. Not really a "novel" more of a collection of articles.
