LETTER: Free money for the Las Vegas Aces

If you give a government bureaucrat a bucketful of surplus money, it should be no surprise it will seep into some feel-good project. The $100,000 to each of the 12 Aces players is a nice tip for a job well done, I suppose. It totals $1.2 million. But it didn’t come out of Steve Hill’s luxurious compensation, or from any other member of the overpaid management at the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority. It came out of tax dollars accumulated from raising Las Vegas hotel rates.

I think that money should have been put to painting the roads in Las Vegas and Clark County. We know it’s dangerous out there. Heck, I’m nervous driving my Ferrari down major arterials, worrying that some neighboring car will drift over my way because there is nothing but dark asphalt.

LETTER: No conspiracy involving Hunter’s laptop

The R-J should acknowledge that Mr. Trump’s lies, frauds, defamations, criminal indictments and convictions are exponentially worse than Hunter’s laptop being evidence or any of the other alleged Biden missteps.

Mr. Trump advocating for tax-free tip income is definitely one approach to winning Nevada. But my tip to Mr. Trump is to pick Marco Rubio and show the diversity of the GOP.

LETTER: Red Rock development ‘compromise’ is depressing

Red Rock Canyon is a fragile natural wonder. To claim that 3,500 homes and the traffic that goes with them, and changing the nature of the watershed, will not negatively impact the area is absurd.

LETTER: Russian warships off the Florida coast

It’s strange that the mainstream media are treating Russian combat ships miles off the Florida coast as nothing to see here.
