It's the beginning of the new year, so of course it's time for Las Vegas to again go begging at the trough of the federal government, hoping for more funds to combat the possibility of a terror attack.
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.
Bernie Sanders has made a presidential campaign out of income inequality, claiming that wealth is created at the expense of the middle class and poor. The exact opposite is true, of course. Income generated in the marketplace — based on voluntary purchases and mutually agreeable salary negotiations — is a positive-sum game, where both sides gain.
Letters from Michael O. Kreps, Alan Syslo, and Andy Hawkins.
To anyone who has followed the long, pathetic saga of disgraced Family Court Judge Steven Jones, this month's vote by the Judicial Discipline Commission to ban him from the bench for life may seem like overkill.
Forty miles from downtown Chicago, in the birthplace of Ray Bradbury, sits one of the nation's most striking examples of the American library's evolving role from book repository to community shelter.
The first question to Hillary Clinton from an audience member during Monday night's Democratic town hall in Iowa must have been a blow from one so young — a potential new voter — this close to the caucuses.
It's hard to believe that the United States, having resisted the siren song of socialism during its entire 20th-century heyday (the only major democracy to do so), should suddenly succumb to its charms a generation after its intellectual demise.
When President Barack Obama spoke in his final State of the Union, he did not do what is typical and offer a laundry list of policies that he wants Congress to enact in his final year. He must have realized that with a Republican House and Senate, such pleas would fall on deaf ears.
You could be forgiven for thinking there's a little clock-running going on in the effort to kill a referendum targeting the commerce tax passed by the 2015 Nevada Legislature.
MIT professor Richard Schmalensee's commentary about utility-scale solar misses the point ("It's time to supersize," Jan. 17 Review-Journal). Everyone knows that initially, technology costs more. It is entrepreneurs and pioneers who reach out and ultimately push that technology forward, making it economically feasible.
Las Vegas desperately needs a new stadium. For that to happen, the city desperately needs a plan for a new stadium. Last week, we got one. And it's the most viable project pitch the region has seen since aging Sam Boyd Stadium was conceived nearly 50 years ago.
No matter how many times journalists, economists or professors dispel the myth of the gender pay gap, Democrats continue to push it.
What a delight to see veteran reporter John M. Glionna suddenly have an article in the Review-Journal after taking a trip to Goldfield.
There's blood on the snowy ground in Oregon, blood that should never have been shed, and that was shed without purpose.
According to Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign website, cyber attacks have "profound consequences for our economy and our national security."
At a time when Nevada residents and record-breaking numbers of tourists finally are breaking free from the grip of the Great Recession, the very last thing they need are additional taxes and fees.
Once again, we the people, locals and tourists alike, are being gouged.
Never attribute to malice that which can be adequately explained by stupidity. This sound aphorism may have a less pithy political corollary: Never attribute to strategy what can be explained by emotion.
Maybe this makes me a traitor to my sex, but I support the tampon tax. Mostly because it's not actually a tampon tax.
