His dad played the president Now that Charlie Sheen is officially unemployed, perhaps he should just set up permanent residency in his favorite spot, Vegas. Hell, he could run for office here. His code of ethics makes him a perfect fit. — Ken Miller, associate editor

Ridin’ For the last month of the season, Las Vegas Ski & Snowboard Resort is offering an unlimited pass for $150, equivalent to three days of lift tickets. If the snow stays anywhere as good as it was last week, that’s a steal. — Sarah Feldberg, editor
