TV and Book Sychronicity

I coincidentally had three stories in my lineup that I read while in or on the way to Vegas that mentioned Vegas. (I did not plan that. Seriously.) Although, now that I've been there, plus having watched all those episodes of "Vegas" as research, people calling it LVPD ticks me off. As much as people calling it DCPD. (It is the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department and the Metropolitan Police Department respectively. Yes, I see how that can be confusing to readers. But not using it ticks off people who know better.)
And, tying in to "Dollhouse" I am partway through a story that involves both Las
Vegas and human trafficking.
And there has been knitting synchronicity since after knitting several patterns with
multi-wrapped stitches, I have now ends up with two patterns that used arrowhead
lace. (Promise, I will work on catching up with knitting blog posts.)

Speaking of Las Vegas and Human Trafficking...My daughter Jessie Foster is an international endangered missing person and a human trafficking victim. We are from Canada and she went missing from her home in North Las Vegas after living there for 10 months. The last time anyone heard from Jessie was March 29, 2006 - over 3 years ago. Las Vegas brags about being nicknamed "Sin City" - can you believe it? SIN what Las Vegas is all about. Gambling, sex, kidnapping & murder are so much a part of Las Vegas that people do not 'bat an eye' when they hear of another - this is sad, sad, sad.
For more info on Jessie's case please go to - thank you, Jessie's mom Glendene.

While I am truly sorry about the disappearance of your daughter (I found details here and here) I hardly think the city itself is to blame.
And while I understand that due to your daughter's disappearance gambling and sex seem intertwined with kidnapping and murder, that seems a very unfair characterization.
