Today’s Spotlight is on Dr. William H. “Bob” Bailey. In his book “Looking Up! Finding My Voice in Las Vegas” the story unfolds of a man who was the vocalist with the famous Count Basie Orchestra in the 1940s, moved to Las Vegas from Cleveland in 1955 to be the MC at the first integrated hotel in Las Vegas (the Moulin Rouge which failed six months later, but set the pattern for things to come). He became a businessman who helped to change the face of Las Vegas. Fascinating!

I would love for you to post comments directly on the column. It is a testimony to what belief and focus can do.
While you're at it, check out my new blog at http://morgan-stjames.blogspot.com For once I'm writing something that has nothing to do with authors or writing --- just thoughts, memories, commentary and more. Anything that comes to mind.
Have a great day.
