Unions should empower black communities
Dec. 29, 2014
I am part of the Las Vegas Freedom Rider Network, and we’re writing to you as black members of the Las Vegas community.
UNLV football needs a recruiter
Dec. 28, 2014
UNLV has a football coach; that’s half the equation. Now they need to hire a recruiter unless Tony Sanchez can do it. The current format (whatever that is) has to change.
Sales, value-added taxes regressive
Dec. 28, 2014
I read with interest the comments concerning the imposition of a national sales tax, whether a true tax on consumer sales or a value-added tax (“Tax reform will save the economy,” Dec. 20). I’ve experienced sales taxes and, while traveling, a value-added tax (although those were usually waived upon leaving that country).
Adelson shouldn’t have so much pull
Dec. 28, 2014
A prohibition of gambling on the Internet is a pet project of billionaire Sheldon Adelson. He does not want competition against his mega casino network and has paid millions to politicians and groups to have Congress ban Internet gambling technology.
Silencing Ralston would be disservice
Dec. 27, 2014
I have known Jon Ralston since he first moved to Las Vegas. Over the years, I have been angry with Jon and happy with Jon; I have agreed with him and disagreed with him. I have been provoked by him, antagonized by him and annoyed by him.
Obama doesn’t mirror Eisenhower
Dec. 27, 2014
Regarding the Dec. 10 letter to the editor, “It’s time to stop the move to the right”: Claiming President Barack Obama has used President Dwight Eisenhower as a model for governing is blind liberalism.
Display of empathy in Las Vegas
Dec. 26, 2014
Las Vegas philanthropy is alive and flourishing. We saw it firsthand Dec. 11 at the Palazzo.
Reasons to make casinos smoke-free
Dec. 26, 2014
A question that is causing the nation to move in the direction of making all indoor businesses smoke-free is why should the 78.5 percent of the people who don’t smoke suffer the consequences of the 21.5 percent people who do? The question is particularly relevant to Nevada because of the casino industry and the fact that gamblers like to smoke. But not all gamblers. What are the percentages?
Better work environments
Dec. 25, 2014
Even popular jobs can be in stressful work environments. Managers can need guidance, sociologists to help solve problems or psychologists to survey the employees for a better work environment.
Global warming isn’t complicated
Dec. 25, 2014
The author of the Dec. 11 letter “New math clouds global warming” was confounded by the amount of carbon dioxide produced by burning one gallon of gas. He didn’t offer any answers to explain his solution.
God would have been a Democrat
Dec. 25, 2014
God was all about caring for the poor, elderly and needy. Not so for the GOP, which caters to the rich at the expense of everyone else.
We just lost another war
Dec. 24, 2014
In a sense, we just experienced the second Korean War.
‘New math’ of scientists works
Dec. 24, 2014
In his Dec. 11 letter “New math clouds global warming,” a letter writer wondered how 20 pounds of carbon dioxide could be created from 10 pounds of gasoline. He further implied this to be but one example of things stated by “global warming alarmists” that “can’t possibly be true.”
Keystone pipeline is not feasible
Dec. 24, 2014
Big oil may have done something what environmental groups and Native American rights groups have been unable to do: stop the Keystone XL pipeline.
Dems should dump Hillary in 2016
Dec. 23, 2014
