I think my favorite moment in the first three seasons of “Game of Thrones” is when Cersei responds to Littlefinger's explanation of how he knows that she is sleeping with her brother by telling her, “Information is power.” The queen regent responds by instructing her guards to slit his throat, then immediately relenting, looking at him icily and explaining, “Power is power.” I found myself smiling, just as I had been tickled by other priceless dialogue and horrified yet transfixed by the...
A lawsuit was filed in federal court Friday to try to block North Las Vegas from partnering with Mortgage Resolution Partners to seize underwater mortages. The suit, filed by Wolf, Rifkin, Shapiro, Schulman & Rabkin on behalf of Gregory Smith, comes one week after the council approved moving forward.

I don't care how you feel about Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid or immigration reform, but try not to get choked up (he did) reading about DREAMer Astrid Silva and Landra Reid's father -- he invoked them both in his floor speech before the bill passed 68-32. UPDATED: Video and transcript below: M. President, 21 years ago, Astrid Silva crossed the Rio Grande in a rubber raft / wearing a ruffled dress and patent leather shoes. She was four years old. Astrid doesn’t remember Mexico, the...
The future of gay marriage in Nevada may rest on the shoulders of Ben Kieckhefer. The Reno Republican surprised many on the night of April 22 when, after remaining silent as most Democrats made dramatic speeches, voted for SJR 13, which repeals a ban on gay marriage and mandates governments recognize such nuptials. The vote in the state Senate was 12-9. In the wake of the Supreme Court’s dramatic evisceration of the Defense of Marriage Act this week, Nevada is seen as the next frontier in the...
