Cowboy at heart Hey, rodeo fans: I swear I wasn’t mocking you when I said “Howdy!” I love the energy you bring to town, and I really do dig those hats and jeans. You’d never guess, but I once owned a horse, too. — John P. McDonnall, copy editor

High there Another starlet has begun her druggy descent—maybe. Salvia is legal, and so is Miley Cyrus, but there’s no need to pull a Michael Phelps. How about not letting your friends record you hittin’ the bong? — Mark Adams, listings coordinator

Chip shot Quick note to the guy who stole $1.5 million worth of chips from the Bellagio: You just stole a bunch of souvenirs. Seriously, you’re not really considering redeeming those things, are you? — Ken Miller, associate editor

Stalkerbook The “see friendship” button on Facebook? Dislike! Now people can see every friggin’ interaction you’ve had with friends. I don’t think I’ll feel comfortable posting on walls again for a long time. — Deanna Rilling, staff writer

Art of numbers Steve Wynn made $42.6 million from the sale of Roy Lichtenstein’s “Ohhh ... Alright ...” at Christie’s. That’s $2.6 million more than CityCenter spent on its entire art collection. — Kristen Peterson, staff writer
