LETTER: Henderson approves major housing development

I read in the Wednesday Review-Journal (“Mine development OK’d”) that the Henderson City Council approved the development of a 3,000-home community at the old Three Kids Mine. Apparently it is OK to add to our already over-developed community with a water shortage problem, but I have to follow a strict watering schedule to maintain my property landscaping or face harsh penalties if I violate the schedule. Does anyone else see an incongruence in this type of thinking by government leaders?

Where was the Southern Nevada Water Authority enforcement we see on commercials when this decision was made? Is there anyone speaking for the people already living in Las Vegas?

Mr. Katsilometes is apparently such a slave to celebrity that he is blinded to the character flaws of the violent felon who he remembers in fawning and adoring terms.

LETTER: Justice is not always served

Two Friday articles remind us that our “justice system” does not work well. It works better as an “injustice” system.

LETTER: No comfort in falling inflation rates

I suggest that our politicians spend less time attacking each other and more time developing a plan to reduce inflation.
