Plazalazzo. Aaargh.

Flotsam and Jetsam is more than just a great Arizona based metal band... of which former Metallica and current Voivod bassist Jason Newstead hailed. Technically, they are terms for items found floating in the ocean.

Jetsam has been voluntarily cast into the sea (jettisoned) by the crew of a ship, usually in order to lighten it in an emergency; while flotsam describes goods that are floating on the water without having been thrown in deliberately, often after a shipwreck.

Ironically, the sea surrounding Treasure Island contains a slew floating casino parts. Flotsam courtesy of the Venetian/Palazzo parent company Las Vegas Sands' slow spiral to the precipice of economic nothingness. Jetsam being the shattered remains of the New Frontier/Las Vegas Plaza real estate deal which shipwrecked in the same storm.

It makes perfect sense that the tides of turmoil would gather these pieces of oceanic trash into a conglomerate of floating dereliction.

Aaargh mateys... and we will call this swabbable poop deck The Plazalazzo henceforth!

Make sense? (thx fivehundy for tweeting)

So LV Sands is going bankrupt and Elad wants their financial help? If you can't afford to build a $5 billion hotel, build a less expensive one!
