Is it really still TOP?

How many decades does it take before something that doesn't have the same name, the same leaders, or the same people, still be the same place?

All else pales in the merciless light of that question.

It stopped being TOP with the name change and concurrent purge of those who would not give personal information.

I know that's where most of us met, but it's long past time to get over it.

Except robinson. robinson must never ever get over it. Got that, robinson?

So, there used to be a casino in Reno called The MGM Grand. The building is still there but it hasn’t been the MGM Grand since the 80s. I think it’s called the Grand Sierra now. The MGM Grand is not its name and has not been for 30+ years

Nonetheless, if my car broke down near there and I called anyone who has lived in Reno for any length of time to come pick me up and said I was broken down “Near The MGM Grand”, even if they are too young to remember when it was actually called that, they would know about where to look for me. So in a way, it really IS still The MGM Grand, even if it isn’t called that officially anymore.


TOP is a lot like that, at least around here. It isn’t really the same place, but if I say TOP, most here will know exactly where I am referring to. Thus, in a way, it’s still TOP.
