Brothel Job for Suspected Killer Cop?

Drew Peterson, 55, a brash, mustachioed former Illinois police sergeant who found tabloid fame after his fourthDrewPeterson wife’s disappearance, said he’s considering a tempting brothel job offer he has received from the HBO reality show “Cathouse,” filmed at the Moonlight Bunny Ranch near Reno.                      

Brothel owner Dennis Hoff said he invited Peterson recently to spend the weekend at the Bunny Ranch and discussed working there, saying he wants to hire Peterson to head the brothel’s security detail. 

Those plans, however, are apparently on the backburner as Peterson was indicted May 7 and held on a $20 million bond for two-counts of first-degree murder in the drowning death of Kathleen Savio, his third wife, who was found dead in a dry bathtub in 2004. 

Drew Peterson seems to relish being under the media microscope since Stacy Peterson, his fourth wife, disappeared 1 ½ years ago.  He has appeared in People magazine and on multiple national talk shows– most recently to tout his new engagement to a 24-year-old woman.

Heart Attack? Quick, Head to a Las Vegas Casino!

Las Vegas casinos don’t just part you from your money- they may even save your life. heart

In the January 11 issue of Parade magazine they reported that the heart-attack survival rate in Las Vegas is 53 per cent.  Compare that to the rates of 16 percent in Seattle (which has some of the nation’s best heart attack response systems) or a paltry 2 percent in Chicago.

Why?  Whether or not you can survive a heart attack depends on how fast rescuers can shock your heart attack back into normal rhythm through chest compression or defibrillation.  In Las Vegas, casino security cameras and guards are constantly scanning the floors in order to catch not just cheaters, thieves, and other vermin, but if a visitor does collapse, someone will assuredly notice and respond quickly.  Security personnel in Las Vegas are also trained in the use of defibrillators and have them at their access to administer the lifesaving shocks within two or three minutes, thus increasing the survival rate.

So, the next time you pass by Las Vegas security personnel, be sure to give them a beaming ear-to-ear smile- they may be at some time your lifesaving friends.
