Just Like the Four Horseman of the Apocalypse there are 4 archetypes for bad dealers.

Gear Grinders – Las Vegas

– Artist Ugo Rondinone and his Magic Mountains – $3.5 million with $100,00 kicked in by LV – tourism draw

Las Vegas Boulevard, where The Strip is located, has had several names. It’s been called 5th Street, Arrowhead Highway, Los Angeles Highway, Salt Lake Highway, US 91, US 93, US 466 and State Route 6
