Did you know that Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito was in Las Vegas on Tuesday evening? Yes, he was in town for the annual St. Thomas More gala, with several folks tweeting about it, including lieutenant governor contender Mark...

My brother and I were as competitive as any two siblings could be. It didn’t matter if it were basketball or soccer or family card games. We were both intense as kids. But if I was a Type A, he was Type A-plus, perhaps because he was younger. And like any siblings only 14 months apart, we often fought, too, always looking for the upper hand, always trying to one-up the other. We were close, yet we were not. We were alike, yet we were different. We loved each other, but didn’t always like each...
News item: National report card shows Nevada is seventh worst in nation in education. News item: National Democrats give up on targeting Nevada Republican Gov. Brian Sandoval. I imagine a speech: I am here today to announce my candidacy for governor because the state I love is not the state it should be. I like Brian Sandoval. I think he loves this state as much as I do. But despite what he says, the skies are not sunny. And this nice guy is going to help us continue to finish last. It’s time...
Pretty smooth move by both sides, getting the regulators to agree, involving all parties, saving ratepayers money (even securing a rebate!) and paving the way for Nevada to become Buffettland. The RJ's Steve Sebelius broke the news on Twitter this morning, and here's the story. And here are details, via the company, of what was filed with the Public Utilities Commission Friday morning (it still must be heard by the commissioners) by NV Energy and Mid-American, the Warren Buffett subdisary: ...
The argument is stunning in its simplicity and perniciousness: Voters should be deprived of certain information when making decisions on campaigns. I’m not talking about a candidate’s sex life or his or her high school transcripts. I refer to who is funding political propaganda brandished in campaigns through the panoply of media available today – the mail, television, the web. If you think that voters don’t need to know the source of political attacks, then you are right in line with groups...
That was fast. The broad coalition of gaming and business interests organizing to defeat the teachers' margin tax proposal has changed the name of a PAC filed just a month ago. The original name, Margin Tax Initiative Research Committee, was silly, even though the claim was the groups had to study the issue before formally coming out to oppose it. Last week, the group filed an amendment to the PAC, changing its name to: "Coalition to Defeat the Margin Tax Initiative" Was it something I...
