In what was billed as his first major speech as Frank Fahrenkopf's successor, American Gaming Association boss Geoff Freeman went to the place where Sheldon Adelson wants to build and touted what Sheldon Adelson wants banned: Web gaming. Freeman's speech was touted in an AGA release: In his first major speech as the new head of the American Gaming Association, CEO Geoff Freeman urged the U.S. gaming industry to embrace the opportunities created by the digital expansion of gaming and challenged...
Good morning, everyone. You have heard about me rail about how the quality of journalism in Southern Nevada continues to deteriorate as the two newspapers are in court in a case that could determine the future of both. (One of the common misperceptions here is that if, as expected, Brian Greenspun loses the case, the Sun will disappear. I’m not so sure it couldn’t survive in another incarnation, and there’s no evidence that it would simply vanish from the web.) But if the Sun were to be gone,...
The margin tax is a huge favorite among voters, the ballot question to remove mining taxation from the Constitution is not far behind and Gov. Brian Sandoval is a juggernaut heading into re-election. Those are the findings of a poll conducted late last month, with a large sample, by a respected Democratic pollster for the Nevada State Education Association, which is pushing the new tax on business. Before going into detail, let me head off the naysayers sure to bleat because of who paid for the...
State Senate Minority Leader Michael Roberson has recruited female candidates in the two critical races next year that will determine if he can change his title. Both are expected to be unveiled today, sources said. The first is Becky Harris, whom I previously told you about and who will take on state Sen. Justin Jones, who barely won his seat last cycle. She will have a primary with Vick Gill, a doctor recruited last cycle by Roberson but who abruptly dropped out after it was learned he had...
Good morning, everyone. I spent some time this weekend at the movies (See “Gravity,” dear Flashees) and saw “Runner, Runner,” the Ben Affleck-Justin Timberlake vehicle about a web poker kingpin. The fact that it is not a good movie and may not do well at the box office may be a godsend for the gamers. Folks, this is all but a manifesto AGAINST Internet poker (spoiler alert!) because it argues that cheating can occur and player accounts are not safe. No one, my dear AGA, is going to come out of...
So in Thursday's episode of "Parks and Recreation," the producers were looking for a City Hall to symbolize extravagance in a city that has nearly gone bankrupt. Don't tell The Family Goodman -- although the city must have given permission, right? -- but look what they used: I don't watch the program, but one of my Twitter followers, @vegaspixie, pointed me to it. Pretty funny, eh, City Council? In the same episode, by the way, a character who wants to go off the grid suggests to his wife: "I'...
