Once upon a time there existed a place where people of every stripe lived and worked and laughed and hurt and fought and loved. A place where people were free to say what was on their minds, free to be swindled by flim-flammers, free to put everything they had on the line to win or lose, free to dream the big dreams and indulge in all life offered.
