Should lawyers advertise. You tell me after viewing this interesting ad that appeared at halftime during the Super Bowl in Savannah, Ga.
I read my friend Brian Greenspun’s newspaper column on Sunday. When I say he’s my friend, I don’t mean that in the “come to my house for the Super Bowl” kinda way.
“Status quo, you know, is Latin for ‘the mess we’re in.’”
If you are one of the few remaining fans of Eric Holder’s Justice Department, it must be getting hard to say with a straight face that America’s top law enforcement agency isn’t engaging in political prosecutions.
When it comes to racial stereotypes, nobody does it “better” than the uber-liberal network MSNBC.
In case you missed it, Las Vegas businessman Jim Rogers launched into a wild tirade on Facebook over the weekend against the Nevada Board of Regents for selecting businessman Don Snyder on Friday as the interim UNLV president.
There are many good combat movies. “Saving Private Ryan,” “Black Hawk Down,” “Gallipoli,” and “We Were Soldiers” spring to mind. Now comes “Lone Survivor,” a powerful story that opens an old wound for me regarding Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid.
I first saw this last night as an electronic press release. Today, it’s a news story on the Las Vegas Sun’s website.
The sad story making the news rounds today is pretty simple: Since Roe v. Wade, some 55 million abortions have been performed.

Are we trapped in our own fears? Or is it just a profound and growing lack of common sense?
I am not a scientist. I admit that without regret. I also don’t know Jack about the science of climate change.
If there is anyone out there who still thinks Sen. Harry Reid isn’t battier than a pet raccoon, then allow me to point out a Reid reference in former Secretary of Defense Robert Gates’ new book that would argue the point.
Reasonable people can agree to disagree on the politics of the day.
Spent some time this week reading about man-caused global warming and that Aussie professor stuck in the ice in Antarctica. I’ll write more on that professor in my Sunday newspaper column. You are invited to tune it here or to the Las Vegas Review-Journal and other fine Stephens Media newspapers.
You knew it was coming. A judge in Utah has ruled that the state’s ban on polygamy — dictated by the federal government in the 1860s — infringes on the free exercise of religion, as well as upon sexual privacy.
Even though the sign at the dog park says owners must pick up after their pets, it’s still a good idea to watch where you step.
As we close 2013, it’s only fitting to make note of one final apology from an MSNBC host. Melissa Harris-Perry, who showed a family picture of Mitt Romney on her show, including Mitt’s adopted black grandson, then made fun of the family at the expense of the child’s skin color. Not funny.
