I wasn't really comfortable talking about this in bits and pieces, so there were no blog posts, no Twitter comments, only the broadest of hints on the podcast. I didn't even tell many close friends. That didn't mean I didn't want to express myself or tell the story, just that this one took some digesting and required me to put the whole thing in the context it deserved.
That's what this week's Las Vegas Weekly cover story is all about. It replaces my regularly scheduled column this go-around. I hope you all find it illuminating.
