LAS VEGAS - Is this the worst moment ever to open a fancy new casino? You're entitled to wonder that, given that Steve Wynn's 2,034-room, $2.3 billion Encore took its first bets last month in the middle of a national financial nervous breakdown. But here's a question more suited to the time and place: What's in it for me? The answer at Encore is plenty. With its big rooms, top-notch service, Asian influences and playful design, Encore is a casino-resort that was designed to grab up the wealthiest, most sophisticated visitors in town and charge them top dollar.

Who's buying our democracy? Wall Street financiers, the Koch brothers, and casino magnates Sheldon Adelson and Steve Wynn, among others. And they're doing much of it in secret. It's a perfect storm -- the combination of three waves that are about to drown government as we know it. The first is the greatest concentration of wealth in America in more than a century. The 400 richest Americans are richer than the bottom 150 million Americans put together. The trend started 30 years ago, and it's related to globalization and technological changes that have stymied wage growth for most people.

Howard P. Rawlings. "His focus is to build a major entertainment complex with racing, slots and entertainment," said Rawlings, a Baltimore Democrat who serves as chairman of the House Appropriations Committee.

LAS VEGAS -- Major casinos and professional boxing have long been synonymous in this gambling mecca, with marquee fighters capable of luring high rollers to the colossal hotels that occupy The Strip.But the relationship has become far more cautious after a mini-riot at the MGM Grand last June in the aftermath of Mike Tyson's ear-chewing disqualification against Evander Holyfield. There was reported gunfire as guests scrambled for cover, and 15 were injured in a stampede for the exits.Hotel spokesmen later said that popping champagne corks were mistaken for gunfire.

Kettle Hill has announced an opening date. Inspired, its operators say, by the life and spirit of Theodore Roosevelt, Kettle Hill will open on April 20 on Market Place as the anchor restaurant in the Power Plant Live complex. The restaurant's name is inspired by the military exploits of Roosevelt and his Rough Riders during the Spanish-American War. San Juan Hill is better remembered today than Kettle Hill, but Kettle Hill is a great name for a restaurant. The team behind Kettle Hill are Keystone Hospitality partners Desmond Reilly and Kristopher Carr, whose growing infatuation with Roosevelt's take-charge ethos has also inspired the name for the bar within Kettle Hill.

MarriottUnited & Babson Investment Report recommends Marriott (NYSE, MHS, $16.37) as a rebound play in the lagging hotel construction business."Marriott should emerge as a slimmed down but much more profitable outfit. It has shed a number of non-hotel businesses and branched out into new growth fields -- golf course management, child-care services, building maintenance and retirement-community development. Encouragingly, bookings are starting to accelerate and cash flow remains strong. We are looking for per share results of around $0.90 this year and $1.10 to $1.20 next.
