If you can’t beat ’em, mock ’em

Okay, I had a few hours worth of deep breathing, and I’ve calmed down. I saw a segment about Jethro’s press conference on the news, and Max Baer Jr. was up there being a goofball. He says he’ll probably end up dealing blackjack and driving the limo, and I believe it! And just in case you were unclear that this is still Nevada, the press conference was held in the parking lot underneath a $20 portable awning.

I still have a twitch in my eye over the whole development, but I have progressed into the “quiet acceptance” stage. This whole project might collapse the same way it did in Reno, but I’m proceeding with the assumption that it’s going to happen. So I’m going to cope the best way I know how, by taking pictures and making fun of it! To that end I am announcing the grand opening of the Jethro’s Beverly Hillbillies Casino Construction Photo Gallery, a sister project to my Ormsby House Gallery, wherein I will keep everybody up to date on the construction of a monstrosity. Maybe with enough luck, my site will eventually rank higher in Google than the official site, which is a godawful monstrosity in itself.

Bring it on, Jethro. The natives are restless, and the Internet’s watching.
