I am re-running this with permission. It’s from my good pal, Evan Wallach. Folks will remember him from his days in Las Vegas with Lionel, Sawyer and Collins. He was the Review-Journal’s outside attorney as well as the kick-ass attorney for the Nevada Press Association.
For Las Vegas aficionados who watched the president’s speech tonight on the ISIS terror threat, this line from Jeffrey Goldberg of the Atlantic will resonate: “Michael Corleone’s fatalistic insight about the mafia also holds true for presidents in the Middle East: ‘Just when I thought I was out, they pulled me back in.’

I am going to refrain from commenting on the actual shooting in Ferguson, Missouri, until we have some facts to deal with.
