  1. RIP Scalia. Love him or hate him, he never took 100 pages when 15 would do.

  2. Lucy Flores' bio is not going to motivate to vote for Bernie Sanders.

    1. Bernie Sanders' bio shouldn't either. For 45 years, he's been stomping his feet and screaming that the rich have too much money, and the government should take it from them and give it to the poor. So, when he was 40, he told the poor people of Burlington VT that, and they elected him mayor. And that, ladies and gentlemen, was the first time Bernie Sanders had a steady paycheck. From a young age, his sole goal was to be a politician. This is not a man who knows what it is to hold down a job, or open a business, or skip paying yourself in order to meet a payroll. He's only a political outsider in the sense that even most of his fellow Democrats couldn't choke down his codswallop. Until now, I suppose.

    2. Sanders is a draft dodger. I as a child of a Vietnam vet have a problem with that.

  3. Anyone know what was going on in front of the public defenders office building this morning. Saw about 4 cop cars and a few LVFD ambulances. And a lot of feathers, oddly enough.......

  6. On a totally unrelated note, I have a friend of mine who wants to do a "demonstration" in front of the federal courthouse this weekend. Probably only a few people, at most, will be joining her in this demonstration.

    Does she need any permits through City of Las Vegas or need to clear this through Metro? Already talked with the U.S. Marshalls at the courthouse; they indicated it is city property, and that's about all they could contribute to the knowledge base.

    This demonstration will be on a very low key, very non-controversial area.

  7. If it is only a few people that will not block pedestrian access, its a protected First Amendment activity. If blocking will ensue, contact the City about a special event permit
