Norms VegasTripping Not So Confidential

Norm's Vegas Confidential has eerily reported on two stories that VegasTripping hinted at in the recent Homeless In Vegas: Wayne Fucking Newton feature story which was published on October 5th 2005.

Point #1: Lon Bronson Big Band Fired From Golden Nugget
VegasTripping (10/5/05):
"Landry's [ is ] fresh in the door and the hipster BS [will] be packed up and left on the Main St. sidewalk (along with Lon Bronson, Downtown Geordie Brown, and Mr. Tony Bennett)"

Norm! (10/10/05):
"The Golden Nugget's new management has canceled Lon Bronson and his All-Star Band. Their last night is Saturday."

Point #2: Wayne Newton at the Flamingo
VegasTripping (10/5/05):
"One thing is for sure, it sure is a lonely town without Wayne Fucking Newton on the marquee somewhere. Flamingo, Ballys, Caesars, Paris, Aladdin? Don't think so... maybe Flamingo if Gladys Knight goes pips up or retires."

Norm! (10/14/05):
"Is Wayne Newton making the Flamingo Las Vegas the last stop of his storied career? My spies say there's buzz that Newton has a deal in the works for early next year after Gladys Knight ends her long run."

Point # 3 - Why is this eerie?
We've been talking to Norm! about doing an interview here on VT, and one of the "Lightning Round" questions emailed to Norm! on 10/10/05 - 4 days before his WFN/Flamingo post was:

VT: Where will Wayne Newton wind up next?

Coincidence? Alien Abductions? Great minds thinking alike? Who knows. Norm, you got a job at VegasTripping if you want one..
