Vegas, MySpace, and the Tyranny of Taste

The joy of the city is its diversity. A great city has styles of buildings from many eras. It has architectural successes and failures. It sports buildings that have been adapted over the years, learning from each new tenant.

The citizens move from distaste to begrudging acceptance to rabid protectiveness of their many unique buildings.
