Lack of decency isolates Trumps
Oct. 26, 2016
I don’t need another accusation of Donald Trump’s inappropriate sexual behavior to know he is an egocentric, undisciplined, self-serving individual seeking more recognition and power. His total lack of self-control, discipline and concern for others regardless of sex, color, religion or country of origin is evident in …
Save lives, vote yes on Question 1
Oct. 26, 2016
There is plenty of passion on both sides of the background check debate, which Question 1 on the Nov. 8 ballot in Nevada addresses.

Before long, Raiders would be looking to leave Las Vegas
Oct. 24, 2016
The vote is in. Gov. Brian Sandoval and special interests pushed a stadium through, offering a prime example of why the average person has little or no faith in our representatives. I have two questions if …
Public’s cost for Las Vegas stadium is too high
Oct. 24, 2016
Building a stadium and bringing an NFL team to Las Vegas is a great idea. It would further put Las Vegas in the spotlight and confirm its status as a progressive city. I do question …

Let Trump, Wynn and Adelson build stadium
Oct. 24, 2016
Here is a very simple solution for the new stadium. Let Donald Trump, Steve Wynn and Sheldon Adelson form a consortium and build it themselves. Mayor Carolyn Goodman wants it in the city, so let the city just give them the land. The land isn’t making …
What, exactly, do voters have to be angry about?

How about a tax on tickets to fund Las Vegas stadium?
Oct. 20, 2016

Border wall would keep Californians out
Oct. 19, 2016
It occurs to me that we not only need to make America great again, but we need to make Nevada great again. To do that we must keep immigrants out. The best way to do that is to build a great, magnificent wall along our southern border to keep out …

Oct. 19, 2016
On the eve of the third presidential debate — a scant three weeks from the 2016 election — I’m not sure if the world or the political establishment has come to terms with the “Trump phenomenon.” Because of Donald Trump, this has been …
