In the political year about to pass into history, there were literally hundreds of memorable things said. Today, I take a look back at the year that was through the prism of a select few of those remarks.
There came a moment at the end of Gov. Brian Sandoval’s meeting with the Review-Journal editorial board Wednesday when he said something very illuminating.

An open letter to Harry Reid:

Back in 2004, just as voters narrowly approved an advisory question to raise the sales tax by one-half a cent to hire more cops, a disturbing idea emerged: What if the city of Las Vegas and Clark County – the local governments that fund the Metropolitan Police Department – decided to short the department’s budget by an equal amount and spend the money elsewhere?
And you thought Nevada was a pioneer state.
