Caravan to Atlantic City: Saturday, March 17, 2001
For anyone interested, a group of us will get together to caravan to Atlantic
City, NJ, so that we can can scientifically observe the habits of short-term
investors [STIs] who regularly make the journeys to that location. Some of
us may get adventurous and attempt the short-term investments game on our
own, as well. It's a dirty job, but I'll probably have to be brave and do
ENJOY! Getting together with other Libertarians, laughing, talking, singing
songs from our carefree Republican or Democratic youth...
HEAR! STIs stand next to a table with a well in it and scream "YO!" or,
even more exciting, obscenities!
TRY! The "luck o'the Irish"--because on St. Patrick's Day, *everyone* is
SEE! Blue-haired STIs with their cane-stools jealously guard three slot
machines *at once*, even when it's crowded beyond all limits! Perhaps Henry
George had something to say about property rights on slots... <g>
EXPERIENCE! Being jostled by people who want to shove past you to get to
the last nickel slot machine--if you can find one...
EAT! At overpriced buffets or restaurants because the competition in
Atlantic City is nowhere near the competition in Las Vegas, and you're
dealing with people from New York City with NYC attitudes!
YEARN! For the free market to work to bring down inflated prices...
BRING! Your casino cards so that they can continue to track your playing
habits and maybe send you some comps or other goodies.
Anyway, we're going to be leaving from the Baltimore area in the early
afternoon, and probably return 12 hours later, in the wee hours of Sunday
morning. If you're interested, contact either me or Nick Sarwark
For Delawareans, we'll be happy to meet you along the way so that you can
join with us in the happy throng.
