"took a more GENTILE approach"

Actually this is great news and all I can say is why did it take so long to happen. Las Vegas is going to have an outstanding medical center and teaching hospital.

If this project is OK with the University, and there is absolutely no way any tax money will be involved (this appears to be the big objection), I think it's great!

I also agree with Mr. Thomas that the University should have a medical school, however University medical schools are usually not located on the campus but in or immediately adjacent to a medical center (hospital) so that should not be any problem.

A privately funded (for profit) public transportation system makes as much sense as a privately funded (for profit) university, health care insurance program, or bank. They all rip-off taxpayers while doing a sub standard job.

Most people would much rather take a high speed train than fly or drive. It's s much more pleasant way to travel.

Nevada meanwhile is no longer the only state with gambling. ALL states now have gambling. A high speed rail system that connects Nevada with Southern California could become a commuter train for high tech people.

Gold BTW was created by God and no one should be allowed to take it out of the ground and then take it and skip out of Nevada without having pay taxes.

My Comment is a question. Is the University Medical Center a teaching hospital of the Touro University Osteopathic Medical school, and if not, shouldn't it be? A medical school, with a physician assistant program, should be a huge asset to health care in any community.
