I just returned from having dinner and a most enjoyable conversation with Morgan White Jr. In the past year, I appeared on his Boston clear-channel radio show from Boston, which reaches the eastern two-thirds of the country, three times for a total of four hours of interviews. This was the first time we met face-to-face. We became friends on the telephone because of our shared interests in American history, entertainment, and especially the Las Vegas casino business. Whenever one of us calls the other to see how each other are doing, it always turns into an hour or two conversation. We ate at the modern incarnation of Ben Siegel’s Flamingo Hotel & Casino on the Las Vegas Strip in a restaurant that displays many photos of old Las Vegas, one following after the other on large TV screens. After a long evening of animated discussion, we took this photo before parting.
