It's true what they say - what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas.

Since I'm not a regular visitor to 'Las Vegas', I was not fully informed on the character of Monica Mancuso, the late and unlamented owner of the Montecito Casino.

After she went sailing off the roof of the Montecito and did a dive bomb run to her death in a shoe store, I wrote up a small essay about her possible relationship to a retired FBI agent named Nick Mancuso. ('Mancuso, FBI' & 'Favorite Son')

But as it turns out, "Mancuso" was her married name. She had been a stripper back East who married an old man and inherited his fortune when he died.

It could be that the old man and Agent Mancuso might be related, but the details that I came up with about Monica's kinship to Nic-O would no longer apply.

So, as Emily Litella would say, "Never mind......"
