With his siblings handing over ownership of the Las Vegas Sun to Brian Greenspun, the sole proprietor announced that he was dropping his lawsuit against the Las Vegas Review-Journal, which sought to end the quarter-century-old Joint Operating Agreement between the two papers. But the RJ isn't letting Greenspun off so easily -- or cheaply. In a motion filed in court, the RJ's parent, Stephens Media, chafes at Greenspun seeking "to walk away from the proceedings he improvidently started by...
Nancy Pelosi is in Vegas today.
Good morning, everyone. Great trip to New York City, dear Flashees, but happy (sorta) to be back. Had a memorable experience shooting two scenes for “Alpha House,” meeting some great people, including creator Garry Trudeau, executive producer Jonathan Alter and several actors, including the wonderful Matt Malloy and Haley Joel Osment (yes, THAT Haley Joel Osment). I’ll let you know when the episodes are released so you can see my Oscar-worthy performance. Premium subscribers were treated to...
Good morning, everyone. This morning’s Las Vegas Sun, print edition, has one local story on Page One that is days old, two national stories, and on the inside, no editorial, a bunch of nationally syndicated columns and some recycled Vegas, Inc., material. On a Wednesday! If this is the future of local journalism, I am going to throw myself into a Barrick mine pit. Note: I will be traveling to New York City for a few days, so no promises on Morning Flashes for the rest of the week. I will not...
Good morning, everyone. It’s hard to believe Brian Sandoval is only 51 today. Makes me realize: I first met him almost exactly 20 years ago, when he was barely out of his 20s and embarking on his political career by being elected to the Assembly. I, of course, was a teenager at the time. (Great Nevada trivia: It was Jim Gibbons’ seat and later held by Dawn Gibbons after Sandoval left.) Happy Birthday, governor. ICYMI, my chat Monday with Ed Schultz on MSNBC about Cliven Bundy and the sovereign...
TONIGHT'S RALSTON REPORTS: We'll see. DAYS UNTIL GENERAL ELECTION DAY 2014: 92 DAYS UNTIL EARLY VOTING BEGINS: 75 Good morning, everyone. Have you checked out the revamped “Ralston Reports” site yet, dear Flashees? Tell me what you think, what bugs you find, what you like and don’t like. I can’t believe it’s almost two years since it was born. Can you? Premium subscribers were treated this weekend to the inside details of that poll I disclosed last week that showed Gov. Brian...
TONIGHT'S RALSTON REPORTS: An imam and a Jewish activist talk Gaza. DAYS UNTIL GENERAL ELECTION DAY 2014: 95 DAYS UNTIL EARLY VOTING BEGINS: 78 Good morning, everyone. You would think after all of these years covering some crazy stuff in Nevada politics that I might be inured. Or immune to surprise. But this ongoing Washoe County school board story, while as annoying as it is ridiculous, also is stunning. These elected representatives ruined – or tried to ruin – the...
TONIGHT'S RALSTON REPORTS: We'll see. DAYS UNTIL GENERAL ELECTION DAY 2014: 96 DAYS UNTIL EARLY VOTING BEGINS: 79 Good morning, everyone. Permit me, for a change, to lapse into narcissism. A poll I have obtained, with some fascinating results you will see on my site, has a question about yours truly. And check out the statewide name recognition: At least 62 percent! (Usually the “not sure” means “haven’t heard of,” but I suppose some people could be neutral or not know who I am...
Good morning, everyone. Of all the first ladies I have met, I would not have picked Kathleen Sandoval to be the one to appear, with no warning, at a public meeting and, showing passion, eviscerate an entire government body. But she did. It was full not of just obvious anger but substance, as she detailed how the school board was hurting the economy and education. I joked on Twitter about what the breakfast conversation must have been like at the mansion. But I bet Mrs. Sandoval’s lesser half...
