Weekend News Roundup

  • "Can the Kos Effect change the Democratic Party?" asks Kirk Caraway of the, brace yourselves, Nevada Appeal. Yup, news that politics as we have known is changing rapidly has made its way to Carson City. Hear, hear. (Link). It was also published in the North Lake Tahoe Bonanza. (Link)
  • Love is in the air! Well, almost. The Las Vegas Sun reports on Friday's gubernatorial debate between Democratic candidates Dina Titus and Jim Gibson: "Some snippiness during commercial breaks suggested the pair have developed more than a mild distaste for each other." (Link)
  • Hey, Nevadans! Volunteer! It's not that hard and it might do the Battleborn State some good. In a report on volunteering Nevada came in last reports the Sun. (Link)
  • An editorial in the San Francisco Chronicle on what is wrong with the California Legislature and how to reform it. (Link)
  • This is just plain ridiculous. "Assembly Speaker Fabian Nunez is selling World Cup soccer-match tickets for measures on the November ballot" reports the LA Times. The price, you ask? $25,000. He may be a Democrat. However that won't stop me from criticizing this bull. Are you frigging out of your mind, Speaker Nunez??? (Link)
