Good morning, everyone. IKEA fever! Catch it. I was amazed, although perhaps I shouldn’t be, at Twitter being atwitter and the RJ putting on the front page ”news” that IKEA will be here. In 2016. Really? This is the NEXT LEVEL? What could possibly be above that? And can we at least give the store some huge tax breaks? What’s below: CD3 activity, Rhee’s pals and a trivia question about a big Vegas project’s anniversary. COMING UP “Making it Happen: Collaborating for Progress in our...
TONIGHT'S RALSTON REPORTS: We'll see. DAYS UNTIL GENERAL ELECTION DAY 2014: 113 DAYS UNTIL EARLY VOTING BEGINS: 96 Good morning, everyone. I admit it: I cry sometimes when I read truly moving pieces, pieces that are redolent of emotion and truth and sincerity, pieces that tug at my heartstrings, show family ties that bind, show integrity and commitment, a willingness to sacrifice money for the community’s betterment, the willingness to put ego aside to do what’s right. This is...
Good morning, everyone. Is it time to bring back the “newspaper” designation after I promised to retire it? Perhaps. In the space of less than 24 hours, the Las Vegas Review-Journal put – count ‘em – three different headlines on a story about a Southern Poverty Law Center study on Bundyville. Only the last one was even close to accurate. Here’s the evolution. I know what you are thinking: Won’t Ralston shut up about the RJ (and the Sun)? I try. Really, I do. But when Brian Greenspun goes on...
TONIGHT'S RALSTON REPORTS: Some local experts on the border crisis. DAYS UNTIL GENERAL ELECTION DAY 2014: 117 DAYS UNTIL EARLY VOTING BEGINS: 100 Good morning, everyone. It’s summer, nothing much is happening in politics (oh but I tell you what’s going on anyhow) so the BIG news this morning is: The Emmy nominations! If you are like me, you are frustrated that this is the golden age of TV and you can’t possibly get addicted to all shows. So I have no seen things I want to see...
Good morning, everyone. This AM’s tale of two cities. First, Cleveland. Cleveland! I still can’t believe that’s where the GOP is going One Clevelandophile emailed me afterward, displaying a humor impairment, and after a brief exchange, told me I was “rude and evil.” The former, certainly; the latter, though, may be a bit much. The second city: Henderson. That’s where Senator Harry Reid is moving. First let me say I chuckled at the RJ’s description of Anthem Country Club, portraying it as some...
Good morning, everyone. In one tweet, why I love Twitter. This is the world in which we now live, where rabid partisans froth before thinking, where substance gives way to vitriol. And this person isn’t even a U.S. senator or congressman trying to inflame the base, or segments of it, with incendiary comments that encourage paralysis but might help win elections. God, I am glad to be back! ICYMI what sparked that tweet, here’s the column, or just stick withthe video distillation. What’s below:...
TONIGHT'S RALSTON REPORTS: I will look tanned and rested. DAYS UNTIL GENERAL ELECTION DAY 2014: 120 DAYS UNTIL EARLY VOTING BEGINS: 103 Good morning, everyone. Did you miss me? Tell the truth! (OK, maybe don’t tell the truth.) I must say that being off the grid for a week on the beach in Coronado was a much-needed respite. I managed to do very little besides watch movies, go to a Padres game and eat and drink way too much. It may surprise you to find how skilled I am at sloth....
TONIGHT'S RALSTON REPORTS: A look at PTSD. DAYS UNTIL GENERAL ELECTION DAY 2014: 130 DAYS UNTIL EARLY VOTING BEGINS: 113 Good morning, everyone. You know how you know you need a vacation when you cover politics? When you wake up in themorning, look at the calendar and hope it is----November! Yes, when you have no tolerance for campaign nonsense, when you want to fast-forward through the endless months, well, that’s a siren. So I shall heed those warning signs and----skedaddle...
TONIGHT'S RALSTON REPORTS: More on the Hillary speaking fee with student and regent leaders. DAYS UNTIL GENERAL ELECTION DAY 2014: 131 DAYS UNTIL EARLY VOTING BEGINS: 114 Good morning, everyone. I watched “The Case Against 8” last night and highly recommend it. That’s the HBO documentary about the case to overturn California’s Prop 8 banning gay marriage. Lots of good inside stuff and snapshots of the lawyers and plaintiffs. Quite moving at time. Yes, it has its limitations, as...
TONIGHT'S RALSTON REPORTS: New gaming regulator Pat Mulroy. DAYS UNTIL GENERAL ELECTION DAY 2014: 132 DAYS UNTIL EARLY VOTING BEGINS: 115 Good morning, everyone. You’ve probably heard by now about Sen. Thad Cochran’s stunning runoff survival in Mississippi, a huge victory for the Establishment as Tea Party favorite Chris McDaniel lost. There’s a Nevada angle to the victory: Field maven Billy Rogers, who helped the Establishment here fend off some primary challenges just last...
