Mike Pegram: An Uncommon Common Man
As he walks around the casino
floor at the Carson Valley Inn, Mike
Pegram looks and acts like just another
customer -- someone ready to play a
few hands at the tables, hoping his luck
and his money hold out long enough so
that he can enjoy a couple of Coors
Lights on the house. Or maybe he’s
heading to the coffee shop, where you
can get an awfully good meal for $7.99.
He’s dressed as he’s always dressed, in
jeans and a comfortable shirt off the
rack at Sears, or some place like that. A
couple of times he stops to chat with
someone. Always with a smile on his
face, he seems to know everyone in the
place and everyone knows him. Never
is he Mr. Pegram. Always just Mike.
That’s what you see on the outside,
the cover to the book on Pegram. Don’t
let him fool you.
