    You’d have had an infinitely more interesting podcast had you called me. No not cocaine and hookers , you pig, but I’d have found a famous person or two for you to meet.

    When I was a kid, the family station wagon broke down in Winnemucca, NV, where we ate at a Family Basque restaurant and it was one of the best meals of my life.

    @jameslileks – Glad to hear you’re “Rambling” again. You need to get out more often! (No Rambles since last August is WAY too long.)

    For anyone else curious, the place where coins fall in a slot machine is called the cash tray.

    @docjay, @ryanrenfro and I could have had another Ricochet Meetup with James.

    We could tour a slot machine factory too.

    James, next time you come, we’ll give you a real tour without the smoke.
