Good morning, everyone. “Harry Reid isn’t on Nevada’s ballot this year, but he may as well be.” That’s true every year he isn’t, but especially this year with the LG’s race, and that’s how Politico’s excellent Manu Raju began his piece that posted today. Raju gets all of the elements, including Gov. Brian Sandoval’s leaning against the race (I never thought he would run but it is March 11, 2013, dear Flashees). There’s also a standard quote from your favorite Flasher. It’s a good read. New...
Good morning, everyone. Sometimes a piece just resonates so loudly and with so much emotion that it must be passed along. Such is the case with journalist Ron Suskind’s incredible story in the Sunday New York Times Magazine about his autistic son opening up through Disney. There are many in this state who have fought for more recognition of autism and more funding for the cause. But everyone should read this story – you will not soon forget it. New countdown: Five days until Gov. Brian...
Good morning, everyone. Thirty percent of filing days are gone, and not one surprise yet. Someday there will be this trivia question: Who was the Democratic nominee for governor in 2014? Other sacrificial lambs – Joe Neal, Patty Cafferata – at least were elected officials at one time. Is it possible that it really will be Brian Sandoval vs. some-dude-we-never-heard-of? Look upon these works--- New countdown: Nine days until Gov. Brian Sandoval is re-elected, and a reporter says, “Do you pledge...
TONIGHT'S RALSTON REPORTS: Guy sues casino after losing a fortune while drunk. And there's a law to cite. Really? DAYS UNTIL PRIMARY ELECTION DAY 2014: 94 DAYS UNTIL GENERAL ELECTION DAY 2014: 242 Good morning, everyone. War was declared on Las Vegas thismorning, according to Politico’s Mike Allen, by the Democratic group, American Bridge, which is trying to damage the city’s chances to get the 2016 national convention. This plays into...
Good morning, everyone. It’s very possible the state Republican Party, a k a The Only Thing That Can Save the Democrats in 2014, is not teachable. But if the so-called leaders were to glance at Texas on Tuesday, they will see what happens when primary challengers try to run to the right and call popular incumbents “liberal” or are backed by Sarah Palin and claim conservative bona fides: They lose. As the Nevada party enables similar primaries here, as the ventriloquists over at Citizen...

Former Speaker Joe Dini dies, two years after the passing of fellow legislative giant Bill Raggio. Sen. Dean Heller calls an armed mob of sovereign nation folks standing up for rancher Cliven Bundy “patriots.” The Legislature fails to act on a proposed margin tax, leaving it to voters. This trio of events may seem unrelated. But they point to the same affliction, one crippling the body politic and one too often overlooked: the loss of respect for institutions. This degradation has occurred...
The Bureau of Land Management, which has been noticeably silent since backing off the Bundy Ranch roundup, needs to publicly explain what happened or uninformed and incendiary voices will dominate the discussion, a former, high-ranking agency staffer said. "After watching the news cycle during the last 48 hours it's time for you and others to start putting some pressure on DOI(Department of Interior) /BLM to explain themselves," said Mike Ford, who worked for the BLM for 25 years in five states...
