  2. Ralston should call his website "The Nevada Hack." Subtitle: So Insufferable Even PBS Could Not Work with Me.

    1. Have you ever tried to have a conversation with Ralston?

      It's basically impossible because his ego is so huge, and he is so certain he has no intellectual peer.

      As Attorneys' we are susceptible to that behavior as well. It's sometimes a great benefit to run into people like that. If you look at the attorneys in this town that are really successful and happy in life, they treat everyone as their equal, whether they be a high school dropout working on the Strip or the Governor.

  3. Ralston is insufferable, but I'm willing to give his site a chance. The second it ceases to be the truly neutral outlet it aspires to be, I'm done.

    1. I almost spit my fucking coffee out when he described his coverage as nonpartisan. I'll read it a few times but I'm sure I'll be over it in a week.
