Someone who has been in Las Vegas at least since high school is Kimberly Iorio. She posted on Quora in response to the question “What is wrong with Las Vegas?”:
Most people have alternative motives as far as making real friends. Usually involving money or sex. Everyone has some kind of addiction to one thing or another and noone is truly really happy. We are not friendly with one another for that reason. Most people come here to become something they couldnt be elsewhere and that makes many fake people here. Real natives can spot them a mile away.
