Jay Nordlinger is spending some time in New Mexico

A man tells me a story: Years ago, he was working at a hotel in Las Vegas (N.M.). The night shift. A couple comes in. The man says, "Which way to the Strip?" "Excuse me?" says the clerk. "Where's the Strip?" repeats the man. It's obvious he means Las Vegas, Nev. The clerk says, "About 600 miles that way. You're in Las Vegas, New Mexico, not Las Vegas, Nevada."

The woman punches her husband - or whoever he is - on the arm and says, "I told you we should have stopped for directions."
