Read in August, 1992

Imagine how Superman would have turned out if the young Clark Kent upon leaving Smallville had decided to subject his unique constitution to a toxic regimen of drugs and alcohol instead of doing time at the Planet. Riding that mortal carousel cranked full-speed sometimes the ride would flare into desert; long roads curved round a promise deferred, the yellow sun shading to black. Was Krypton real, or was he just another sucker playing a fools game? Only one way to find out: go to Las Vegas and extract from it the American Dream.
