Letters from Shelley Carpenter, Bob Jack and Kevin Fitzgerald.
Letters from Richard Pratt, Jim Hartman, Walter F. Wegst and Larry Acker.
There appears to be a serious difference of opinion between Apple and the FBI ("Apple bets big on public's thirst for privacy," Thursday Review-Journal). The FBI claims it needs encrypted information from the phone of the perpetrator of the terrorist attack in San Bernardino, Calif. The FBI hopes to "possibly" find additional information on a crime that has already been solved.
The death of Justice Antonio Scalia leaves the Supreme Court in a 4-4 tie on remaining conservative (i.e. Republican) and progressive (i.e. Democratic) judges. Republicans are uniting on a premise of not allowing a new judge to be approved until the next president is elected and takes office, roughly 11 months from now.
After reading the Jan. 23 article on the new parking fee for MGM Resorts and and CEO Jim Murren's justification for it, my only thought was that MGM is opening another Pandora's box in Las Vegas.
Once in a while, an issue such as federal lands gets groups of citizens into such a state of frustration that they just erupt. Right or wrong, they are just so fed up with what they are seeing that they lash out in an effort to get people behind them.
The Feb. 4 Democratic presidential debate is what a debate should look like, not the clown shows that make up the Republican debates.
DeWayne McCormick's letter was yet another espousing the virtues of rooftop solar, while lambasting NV Energy and the Public Utilities Commission ("Harming rooftop solar," Wednesday Review-Journal).
It was so nice of Nevada Senate Majority Leader Michael Roberson to remind us of how much he and the Republican-run Legislature were looking out for the interests of children when they pushed through their "groundbreaking" education reform bill ("School choice," Feb. 3 Review-Journal letters).
Who approved printing sex tips for those riding the High Roller? ("Vitalvegas.com's 11 vital tips for having sex on the High Roller," Wednesday Review-Journal). Encouraging illegal behavior should not be happening in your newspaper.
I have watched all the Democratic debates and town halls, and I agree with Sen. Bernie Sanders that a revolution must occur. I do, however, believe that Sen. Sanders is part of the establishment, because of all his congressional committee work. The revolution is for Hillary Clinton.
Sen. Bernie Sanders' run for the White House is even scarier than the thought of Hillary Clinton becoming president, but I think recent local news about the Department of Veterans Affairs is more important to many veterans in Southern Nevada.
Regarding Ed Graney's article on the NFL honoring the high school of every player or head coach who was on an active roster in one of the previous 49 Super Bowls, when will Mr. Graney and the rest of the country move on from this "Deflategate" nonsense?
I found it surprising that in endorsing Sen. Marco Rubio for Nevada's Republican presidential caucus, the Review-Journal editorial board chose charisma over competence ("For the Republican caucus," Sunday RJ).
Letters from Mary Aquino, Ken Gutstein and Carl Martin.
Letters from Scott Hippert, David Adams, Vicki Bennett and Dave Dobbins.
A domed stadium sure sounds nice, doesn't it? Of course it does, but on whose dime?
Having moved to Nevada years ago, I've noticed articles on a regular basis about judges in trouble or even violating the law themselves.
Las Vegas is a center of capitalism, and it does not need a publicly funded stadium
While we may disagree politically and philosophically, I have always known Clark County Commissioner Chris Giunchigliani to be a person of integrity who cares about her community.
I retired to Las Vegas 12 years ago and love it here. I came because I loved the Strip and all it has to offer in entertainment, food and ever-changing beautiful casinos.
Letters from Michael O. Kreps, Alan Syslo, and Andy Hawkins.
