"What does it take for me to get arrested?" asked Cynthia Papermaster, 70, as she laid in the road. Impeding traffic was enough of an offense, as members of LVMPD reluctantly handcuffed her. Creech Air Force Base and the small town it is near, Indian Springs, are located about an hour outside of Las Vegas. It is also home to one of the largest drone programs run by the Air Force. The drones flown out of Creech are responsible for flying missions all over the world. A group of protestors gathered there to express their displeasure with the program. The protest was generally peaceful and the police acted professionally. There are similar protests all over the country near other bases involved in the drone program.
Les Grossman is a longtime concert promoter and entertainment executive who has worked with acts like The Who and Led Zepplin. He is such an interesting guy that he is portrayed by Tom Cruise in the movie Tropic Thunder. He lives on the edge of Vegas, so I decided to meet him at his home for the photo. I took a bunch of photos, but liked these the best because of a the great light you get at night in Las Vegas when the city's lights bounce off the clouds.
