No outrage over white man’s death

Police misdeeds may finally bring changes
May 11, 2015
The black protesters in Baltimore have been called thugs by many people in a blanket statement. To be sure, there were thugs among the looters, who weren’t there to protest in the first place. But the blanket indictment of the black protesters is symbolic of the problems.
How was someone on Flora after 1952?
May 11, 2015
During the middle ’60s I worked for Bendix Radio RSD, updating the site manuals for all the Pacific Missile Range’s downrange missile tracking sites/ships that Bendix operated. While doing so, I had worked on Eniwetok documenting our MOTU, MILS, AWILS and radar sites.

May 9, 2015
I am angry that two world-famous boxers are receiving such an obscene amount of money for barely breaking a sweat.

While I understand it was inevitable the Riviera was going to close, was it necessary to completely obliterate the property’s online presence within …
Solar investment return is pitiful
May 7, 2015
I have invested a significant dollar amount in a solar power system, and the 3 percent cap that NV Energy insists upon paying those of us with solar is egregious and unconscionable. A system costs in excess of $30,000, and I considered the system to be …
