IN THE NEWS:Linda Ronstadt praises 'Fahrenheit9/11 and gets booed. Before singing "Desperado" for an encore Saturday night, the 58-year-old rocker called Moore a "great American patriot" and "someone who is spreading the truth." Well, the informed audience booed and left the theater, tearing down posters and throwing drinks. I will quote Aladdin President Bill Timmins “"She praised him and all of a sudden all bedlam broke loose. "Timmins, who is British and was watching the show, decided Ronstadt had to go — for good. Timmins said he didn't allow Ronstadt back in her luxury suite and she was escorted off the property. Ronstadt's antics "spoiled a wonderful evening for our guests and we had to do something about it," Timmins said. Maybe there is hope for us after all.
MOVING ON: Michael Tata - was found dead on July 6 in Henderson, Nevada. He was 33 years old. The cause of death is unknown and is under investigation. He was a casino executive who was the vice president of hotel operations at Green Valley Ranch in Las Vegas and was featured prominently in The Discovery Channel's new "American Casino" reality television series, which I have been watching and I really like.
