Suggestion Box: Cash or credit

Not to beat up on the Las Vegas Strip even more, given that there are nearly more companies that have declared bankruptcy than those that haven’t, but we couldn’t help but be a little puzzled when we heard that a Toronto businessman wanted for $12.9 million in gambling debts was able to write a (bad) check for $7.9 million at one of our esteemed casinos. What the hell were you guys thinking? No one thinks there’s a chance the check might bounce? Here’s our friendly, but pointed, suggestion: First, ask for two forms of ID. Then say, “Hell no!”
