    We had rooms on the Stay Well floor at the MGM, extra air filtration on that floor and in the rooms along with other amenities. It made a world of difference in air quality!

    Fair enough :) The word "freak" means something derogatory to me. Sorry if I over-reacted. I've never heard "America's Playground", just "The Entertainment Capital of the World" :D

    Please! I'm from Vegas and played varsity tennis there. You have no idea how disgusting the weather can be. Hang in there, it could be much worse, like 110 degrees with the hot nasty wind.
