Dalitz gave few in-depth interviews in his lifetime, but much was written about him. Las Vegas history is filled with characters who lived double lives. The life of Moe Dalitz is perhaps the best example of a gambling man existing in sunshine and in shadow. His story might have been penned by Horatio Alger had he written scripts for 'The ...

The Luxor hotel's glass pyramid seems dangerously close to the runway's edge, as dots chocolate-and-gold sphinx and rows of shaved palms. I wonder if these rooms tremble when jets land. Behind the Luxor are mountains kissed by dust the hue of bone; to its left lies the Strip, where color is so bright it looks like it has died, rotted, and come back as a poisonous flower. I have been forewarned. First...
