This is America: Miss Mamie's Casino.


This is Miss Mamie's Casino. It is attached to a gas station somewhere in west Louisiana. At first, I couldn't believe that this would be a casino. Perhaps it was a liquor store, I thought. But it was in fact a video poker casino. It was perfect for crusty people to live the dream by smoking and drinking and playing video poker in a dimly lit room at 2 P.M.

This is the first in a series about my trip across America. I am moving to L.A. and am driving there. It will be a series of dispatches about transitioning from East Coast Boston, to West Coast Life.
