Author and journalist Paul Carr lives in hotels full time. So he thought what better place than Las Vegas is there to live for a month and get a snapshot of what the city is like. Carr say he is wants to figure out what Las Vegas can tell us about the state of the American dream by talking to the people who work everyday jobs in Las Vegas. That includes people like police officers, sex workers and casino employees. He is chronicling his journey in a diary for the Huffington Post and Paul Carr joins us to talk about living in Strip hotels for a month.
