Sands Casino Resort Bethlehem

...Free-lance journalist Steve Friess joins us to discuss the opening of Las Vegas Sands' newest casino project, about 90 miles north of Philadelphia in Bethlehem, Penn. Friess is covering the story for The New York Times and details how Sands operator Sheldon Adelson is banking on the new resort in the Boston-Washington, D.C. corridor to help reverse the fortunes of his struggling company.
