I always intend to write something meaningful, timely at the beginning of these monthly calendars. It generally does not happen. Most of my creative writing and editing these days is on Planeta.com.

May is the beginning of summer heat in Las Vegas. The thermometer is about to hit 90 and will climb further the next few months. That said, it’s a dry heat. I’ll be entertaining some out-of-country visitors and I look forward to seeing their reactions to Las Vegas 2017, not to mention the political landscape which probably has to be seen to be believed.
