On the Boulevard

1150On the Boulevard brings together the best writing of Las Vegas’ most popular columnist, the Las Vegas Review-Journal’s John L. Smith. Smith provides singular insights into the fast, fluid, and often funny town he’s chronicled for nearly 20 years. Subjects include: Las Vegas mayor and Mob mouthpiece Oscar Goodman, legendary slot cheat Bill Land, and seldom-chronicled gambling icons such as Mel Exber (Las Vegas Club), Si Redd (IGT), and Big Julie Weintraub (’60s junket operator).
