Friday News Roundup

  • McAvoy Lane has a funny piece in the North Lake Tahoe Bonanza. The headline: "Can Americans sue the president for identity theft?" (Link)
  • Justin Peel is this year's valedictorian at George Whittel High School which I attended as an exchange student ten years ago. The Tahoe Daily Tribune reports that before he'll be going to Santa Clara University this fall he plans to travel to Germany, Switzerland and Italy. Justin, if you should by chance read this drop me an e-mail. (Link)
  • In case you're interested in what Nevada's congressional delegation earned and owns the Nevada Appeal will let you know. (Link)
  • The Las Vegas Review-Journal report that Governor "Guinn comes close to endorsing Hunt". Whatever. (Link)
  • Jane Eisner points out that "amending values doesn't work" and that "most successful attempts to amend the Constitution are pushed by social movements of inclusion, not exclusion". The Republicans should take note that the only "values" amendment ever passed, was followed by another amendment a couple of years later retracting the first one. That was the one about the prohibition. (Link)
  • On the Auburn Journal's homepage you can vote on whether or not there should be a campaign spending limit on city and county elections. (Link)
