Re: Vic Fontaine

I will give the '50s Vegas theme some credit: TNG could be very dismissive of popular culture. I could be personally involving, like Dixon Hill, but lacking popular appeal. And Riker played the mustiest, most passionless Jazz, almost bereft of any awareness of the history of the genre.. At least Vic's was something that all the characters could share and relate to in their own way. Too bad the writers didn't have the courage to also use Vic's as a stage for similar efforts of other cultures (even other human cultures).
