For the past week I've been writing a blog post. After the second power outage, however, and watching all those words go down the digital drain (and yes, I do realize I should have hit the save button...) I decided I needed a break.
In the meantime, I submit the following very short clip from the magnificent film Casino - a movie which begins on a note of glamour and hope, and ends with about as much carnage as your average Shakespearean tragedy. But then, so many casino dreams have a way of turning into nightmares.
This clip, while short, says a lot about the gambling industry. And if you haven't seen the whole movie yet, I highly recommend it.
