Rarely will voters be confronted with a more abysmal choice in November and on the most important contest on the ballot. When it comes to the margin tax, Nevadans will have to choose between relying on a school-funding measure that was poorly constructed and could have deleterious effects on the economy and leaving the task in the hands of a dithering, invertebrate Gang of 64, a k a the governor and the Legislature. This is not a lesser of two evils or pick your poison choice; this is asking...

I have already suggested he won't run. But Beers is all about fun and being wry --...
