Less Vegas

The cover of Time Magazine this week is “Welcome to Less Vegas.”

The article says, Vegas has “the highest foreclosure rates of any major metro area, and the unemployment rate jumped from 38% to 12.3% in just three years.” It also talks about how a lot of conventions are being canceled because “companies don’t want the bad publicity” of being associated with Vegas while its in this economic state, and that Vegas is “the deepest crater of the recession” and “this city hurt hardest by recession” and that, “The devastation has spread into every aspect of Vegas.”

Sounds like a good time to be doing ministry here.
