Because the sun is the only thing in the universe that hasn't lost its shorts in Las Vegas, it's being put to work. Associated Press tells us that the famous "Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas" sign will be powered by the sun. Solar panel installation started yesterday. The builders promised the "solar trees" would not show up in the background when tourists took pictures in front of the sign. Apparently this was a major concern of city officials. A big grant from the Consumer Electronics Association got the project rolling. Oh, and there will be a plaque explaining how the solar powered sign works. I assume you probably have to put a bunch of money in it and get 5 of a kind before you get the explanation, though. DB
