Remember this case? Despite an attempt by Jeff Guinn and his lawyers to tarnish journalist Dana Gentry's reputation with a "when did you stop beating your wife?" type of inquiry, the state Supreme Court has quashed the attempt and in so doing likely strengthened Nevada's shield law. The decision is attached.
So what will high-profile Nevadans be giving thanks for on Thursday? I happen to know: ►Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid: For John Boehner’s Tea Party anarchists. For Sharron Angle (never stop thanking God for her). For being able to interview political editor candidates at the Las Vegas Sun. ►Sen. Dean Heller: For re-election being five years away. For No Labels, so no real permanent positions. For his ultra-professional staff. ►Rep. Steven Horsford: For modern medicine. For North Las Vegas’...

Heck retierated to the group that he would not sign on to the Democratic bill, House Resolution 15 and that it would not pass because Speaker John Beohner...

Former chancellor: UNLV must look outside for next president, regent "ignorant" for suggesting hiring of insider
UPDATE, 11/23/13: Assembly Majority Leader William Horne responded Saturday morning. He said he has "tremendous respect for Jim Rogers but I disagree on this particular issue." Horne said Provost John White is "ready to be president." Horne added that he dealt with White during the Legislature, including discussions of the system funding formula.
