I did talk to her and she said it was mostly a joke, they are a group who is going out there to talk about Jesus if people want to. But they won't be running around with bullhorns and all that jazz. I told her what she posted kinda rubbed some people the wrong way and she knew this. She said she got a lot of hate mail about it. She got that people didn't get the joke and has now sense edited it or is editing is as nothing is on the page she seems like a sweet girl though who just made a mistake.

Yeah. I'd say that planing to deceive people to lure them into your tent is a mistake.

Along with claiming "found out witches were coming and taking kids back to their camps and reciting curses on them."

They should come to the Christmas Parade in Virginia City. One float will have Santa, the next will be sponsored by the Mustang Ranch with a number of the working girls riding it followed by a high school marching band. Quite a unique Christmas parade :D A group of us meet at the Bucket of Blood Saloon every year just before the parade - snow permitting.

Simon isn't actually spending all week at Circus Circus. Turns out that he's coming back to the playa (by plane) to sleep every day.

As long as they stay incognito, things will be fine. When they start flitting around with the arrogant "look at me" attitude, then it becomes ugly. A little bit of masking goes a long way on the playa.

If I cared, I'd have to google Holly Madison. Luckily, I don't care. I hope she has a terrific burn, and gets it, whoever or whatever she is.
