That's because it was Atlantic City.... which is Jersey. Can't really fault him
As a Jersey girl, I must stand up for my former state. Atlantic City is indeed a hell hole, not a reflection on the rest of the state (and no references to anything within 20 miles on NY City - that's not my Jersey). Once you are inside the black hole that is a casino you could be on Mars and it would be the same, Las Vegas is just as bad, but doesn't have an ocean to enjoy when you free yourself for the flashing lights and slot machines. The Las Vegas Strip is not a pretty place, despite what you see on tv.
My Jersey rant is done, thank you for listening....
