**ADVANCE FOR WEEKEND EDITION, MARCH 22-23**Tourists play slot machines at the Paris hotel and casino in Las Vegas, Saturday, March 15, 2008. In a town enthralled with its own mythology, Las Vegas is partial to this myth these days: Gambling is recession proof. The economy may spiral, belts may tighten, but gamblers will always double down, according to the oft-repeated logic. It's characteristic optimism for a city and an industry that's far more accustomed to boom than bust. It's just not true, experts say. (AP Photo/Jae C. Hong)
