That's the word from the state -- gaming taxes down 3 percent in May, win down less than 1 percent in April. You can see the full report, attached here, which shows that even though the North is way up, the Strip still drives the state.
You remember, before she was born, the clichés you ignored in the fog of anticipation – cherish every moment; it will go by in the blink of an eye. You remember how radiantly beautiful she was when she came into the world, even with the baby acne dotting her face, and how you scoffed at your own skepticism about love at first sight.

The piece, written by former Las Vegas Review-Journal reporter Tony Batt, describes as "striking" Fahrenkopf's comments about Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and ex-Sen. Jon Kyl. The usuaally circumspect Fahrenkopf expressed frustration to Batt, saying, "I mean, we worked our tails off and to get to the...
UPDATE, 6 PM, WEDNESDAY: The governor's office reports more than 2,000 calls so far on the bill, with callers about 4-to-1 against. Here's what spokeswoman Mary-Sarah Kinner told me: "The volume of calls we are receiving has increased exponentially this week and while calls regarding SB 221 account for the largest volume, it is not the only issue we are tracking. Tracking constituent calls is something our office does on a regular basis, however, due to the high volume of calls on SB 221, we...
