Thursday News Roundup

  • The Reno Gazette-Journal has the Northern Nevada reaction to Bush's first veto. (Link)
  • I can't tell you guys often enough how glad I am that Jack Carter is running for the Senate and not Las Vegas mayor Oscar Goodman. Case in point: the new city ordinance supported by Goodman outlawing that you give food to homeless people. The ACLU ridicules the mayor and wonders how the law would be enforced. "'Certain truths are self-evident,' Goodman said. 'You know who's homeless.'" For heaven's sake, this man is just out of his mind. The Las Vegas Review-Journal. (Link)
  • The race that keeps on giving. The paper that keeps on reporting on it. Titus. Gibson. The Las Vegas Review-Journal. Today it's about Titus and Northern Nevada. Again. Yawn. (Link)
  • Today the Las Vegas Review-Journal finally picks up the brothel story from the AP via the Reno Gazette-Journal. Funny how the Review-Journal always finds reporters to cover the T-G primary bullshit but somehow couldn't get a reporter on this story. Hmm. (Link)
  • The TASC ballot initiative is bad for you. Get a grasp. It's easy thinking. Limiting spending means less money for teachers, schools, etc. Once again, the LVRJ. (Link)
  • Hey, the Arnold got a new girl, I wondered. Turns out it was only a "Gottschalks" ad. Anyhow, the breaking news from California is that President Bush will do two fundraisers for the Arnold. President George Herbert Walker Bush, that is. 43 is still not allowed to fundraise for the Arnold. Maybe he's afraid he'll get a Merkel-style backrub... (Link)
  • The dangers of summer. Some tips for the Angelides campaign, courtesy of George Skelton of the LA Times. (Link)
