Good morning, everyone. Just a quick one for you today, dear Flashees. Spending half the day in the North and half in the South as I try to keep apprised on doings in both ends of the state. Still haven’t opened that rural bureau of “Ralston Reports,” but looking at space in Elko---- Yesterday should have been a national day of mourning in America as the slow death of the English language in continued. Et tu, speaker? John Boehner telling the Senate to “get off their ass,” as I pointed out on...
Good morning, everyone. The Steven Brooks story just won’t go away, and I found some lawmakers still (understandably) nervous that he remains in Northern Nevada (and has been seen in Carson City). News that he cannot legally purchase a gun gave few any solace. Let’s face it, dear Flashees: If Brooks wants to get a gun, he will get one. And so he remains on the street, and people in the building remain on edge. Today is the last day at the Las Vegas Sun for veteran capital reporter David McGrath...
Good morning, everyone. Sorry this is a tad late, dear Flashees, but with an Oscar hangover and travel to the capital, I am lucky to have this to you at all. But I persevere, like Ben Affleck, who talked about being down before he got up to win the Best Picture award for “Argo.” Although proportionality might be an issue for Affleck and the rest of the Tinseltown crowd – was he ever really down compared to most people? – I must say, despite the historical distortions, I enjoyed his move quite a...
Good morning, everyone. That horrific incident on the Strip is reverberating nationwide as tourism officials and Sheriff Doug Gillespie feared it would. I was listening to NPR on my daily drive home from Starbucks at the crack of dawn when I heard the storysummed up by the anchor. And then she concluded thusly: “This is the latest in a series of violent episodes in Las Vegas in recent months.” Oh? Lovely. On Thursday, as if he were the Moses of Nevada – Let my gamers go! – Gov. Brian Sandoval...
Good morning, everyone. Sorry I’m late today. Traveling back South today to be on an iGaming panel after a sojourn in The Great White North. Not much surprising to report: They are happy and optimistic. Still. Ah, the early days of a session: When hope springs eternal, and no one notices the 120-day expiration tag. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid brought the crowd to its feet several times – OK, once – during his biennial speech in the Assembly chambers on Wednesday. In case you missed it,...
Good morning, everyone. Winging my way to Carson City today to take the pulse of the building, which surely has quickened in anticipation of Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s skills. I’m hearing that a freshman lawmakers is expected to yell ”What about your gaffes?” as Reid speaks. But I have no confirmation of that. As always, even though Reid himself is not exactly a media maven, his folks are, and set the stage with timed leaks to frame the speech as taking on the power utility, a frequent...
Good morning, everyone. Does anyone think it would be bad form if I went up to Carson City to testify in favor of this? Pro tip, though: It would have been smarter to get a few Republicans on board. I would love to see the debate over annual sessions actually take place for the first time. But my guess is this will happen about the same time that much-promised, in-depth discussion of the state’s tax structure will take place. Well, I said I didn’t want to jinx it, and I supposed I did. Just a...
TONIGHT'S RALSTON REPORTS: We'll see.
