Steve Wynn : The Editors Choice For Vegas Person of the Year In Las Vegas

Steve Wynn

Steve Wynn has won the Trippies Person of the Year award more than anyone else. He earned every Trippies award by demonstrating unquestionable leadership in building and transforming the Las Vegas casino resort industry into what has become. Beyond business acumen, his dedication to redefining the luxury experience was unparalleled, and guaranteed our continued support.

Once again, Mr. Wynn has won a Person of the Year award. But for all the wrong reasons. He has demonstrated that he is resoundingly out of touch with everything but vanity - continually chasing something the never ending march of time offers easy escape to - youth. He distorts facts for personal gain, throws away life long relationships over dollar foolish squabbles, is so full of hubris that he holds the treat of not working his resort magic over the heads of the populace so they will be complicit in his political agenda.

Perhaps we should praise Mr. Wynn for giving psychologists something new to study - the "last third of life crisis".
