Well duh, its clear to anyone that Clark County is severely distressed. Who wouldn’t be after having to call a do-over Democratic convention? Oh wait, this is about the Nevada real estate market? Whoops. Its good to hear that the Washoe County real estate market has improved from the category 5 assigned to it by [...]
Thanks to John Cole at Balloon Juice for the video. Catch-22 provides clarification for America’s perennial problems–corporatism, bureaucracy, and our often less than complex beliefs about patriotism, honor, and morality. The latest “scandal” over Obama’s lack of patriotism and unfortunately non-white complexion, reminded me of the Glorious Loyalty Oath Crusade. Take note. What really constitutes [...]
The Gibbons will have a family meeting this weekend to discuss a possible divorce: To Damon at the RGJ.com
The Gleaner is “reporting” that Nevada Governor Jim Gibbons is filing for divorce. I have had several inquiries, and as much as I wish I knew something, no one I spoke to can or will confirm the rumor tonight. I’m sure we’ll hear more about this tomorrow. Wonkette’s Ken Layne is already all over the [...]
For all the hype and “second coming of (fill in the blank)” accolades bestowed upon Barack Obama you wouldn’t think he would be trailing the beleaguered GOP’s candidate. But John McCain is beating Obama in the latest L.A. Times/ Bloomberg poll 44%-42%. (
Nevada’s Governor Jim Gibbons may be getting divorced soon, Microsoft may have been fined $1.35 billion by the European Union, and John Solomon may have written another hit piece–this time on Obama–but today’s most important issue is UNR’s possible ban on beer sales at football games.

From Scott Horton at Harpers: I am now hearing from readers all across Northern Alabama—from Decatur to Huntsville and considerably on down—that a mysterious “service interruption” blocked the broadcast of only the Siegelman segment of 60 Minutes this evening. The broadcaster is Channel 19 WHNT, which serves Northern Alabama and Southern Tennessee. This station was [...]
Glen the Houseboy has a nice ring to it. Once is an excellent film.
For an excellent account of today’s downtown baseball stadium groundbreaking, visit Ken’s Urban Blog. Somehow Ken managed to attend the event even though he lives in Seattle. Does he astral project? Anyway, the new stadium district is what I’m most excited about–not the baseball stadium, although that will be nice too. I think the stadium [...]
The alternative title for Noonan’s latest Wallstreet Journal editorial: Successful black people don’t know what its like to black, or white, or poor. So they shouldn’t run for president, or even talk really. Privledged white men like JFK and Bush are much more eloquent on what it means to be American. Is it just me [...]
I doubt anyone planned it to be, but Saturday’s Clark County convention fiasco has given proponents of the campaign to the caucus format with a state primary more than enough ammunition to pursue the change with state lawmakers; especially since Dina Titus is one of them. The Culinary Union’s D. Taylor summed the convention disaster [...]
