RIP Mr. Santori

Las Vegas Journal reported the violent death of a Roadie, MR. Santori. He was just out for an evening ride and someone shot him, 4 bullets. Just a quiet man, 59 years old, who restored cars and owned some bikes. Just riding out on Nellis.

Thats pretty sad, when I visited Las Vegas I wondered why most drivers were so angry? so I asked the doorman at the place I was staying, he told me that Las Vegas had one of the highest rates of crimes caused by road rage, he also mentioned they had high suicide and murder rates! He then went on to say that its "due to the climate, like Alaska, but reverse." his exact words.

Its not the climate, its the I gonna get a retirement out of the Casino Mentality. Too many shisters trying to get rich quick. they leave a lot of people hurting as well.

Vegas is a great place to live, as long as you know you always gotta work and keep your nose clean. Mom was right.

Vegas is a spectacle. One weekend every five years or so is enough for me though.

There is a life away from the strip! People is people. Tonight we BBQ! After you live here a couple years a casino is like a Walmart. If you have to go in one, you can find one.

Sad. Tragic. Hellish.

Why do stupid people have guns?

RIP, Mr. Santori.
