True story: In 1978 I flew to DC for the first time. My seatmate was an older man, pleasant to talk to (as so many are NOT any more). He was very interested in the fact that I lived in Las Vegas, surprised that I didn't gamble, etc. And he actually said to me, "I didn't think real people lived there."
