Or a sailboat.

We were sailing on the big lake at night, navigation lights lit, and were almost run down and killed by some inattentive idiot in a cabin cruiser.

What are you talking about?

Prostitution is NOT legal in Las Vegas.

Sports betting and gambling are permitted, but not the world's oldest profession.

I hope they're doing well enough to keep the Mount Washington afloat next year.
