RESTAURANT REVIEW: CHI ASIAN KITCHEN (STRATOSPHERE)
I hated everything about Chi Asian Kitchen except one thing; the food, which was terrific. So, how do I write a restaurant review and what grade do I give it?

THOUGHTS ON “LAS VEGAS, NEVADA”
I live in the city of LAS Vegas. Not “Vegas.” You will not find “Vegas” on a map. Such a place does not exist.

MAGIC MICKEY MOUSE CRYPTO FUNNY MONEY AND THOSE ATM BITCOIN CANDY MACHINES
Blockchain/cryptocurrency is nothing more than a giant financial meth lab. Sure, some people are getting rich off of it. So do drug dealers. But in the end, it’s toxic.

TACOS AND TEQUILA (PALACE STATION)
We had no plans whatsoever to eat Mexican food for lunch yesterday, but when we saw the sign out in front — “2 lunches, 1 appetizer for $30” and “2 for 1 margarita special” — well, they had me at “get your ass in here.”
A surprising discovery: Tacos and Tequila used to be inside the main atrium at the Luxor, until the corporate fun killers raised the lease so high that only the big chains can compete, and so after disappearing from the Las Vegas landscape for a couple of years, they found a new home inside Palace Station, which has undergone a major renovation. We used to enjoy the old Luxor location many years ago, so this was an instant “table for two” change of plans. T&T deserves far more love, and more customers. I hope spreading the word might help.

Let me address all the sports gambling experts out there.
Your “analysis” is pretty much worthless unless you also tell us WHY you like a pick. It’s that simple.
I want to hear your REASONING. I need to know if you UNDERSTAND what you’re talking about. I must hear IN YOUR OWN WORDS what compels you to make a pick. If your analysis is solid, then it has value to an audience.
Otherwise, your pick is a waste of time.

The only good thing about the current dysfunction of the Republican Party is that they’re very likely committing mass political suicide.

While other states squash women’s reproductive rights and outlaw access to abortion, Nevada should move swiftly into the void and become a sanctuary and a safe haven for pro-choice practitioners and advocates.

AMERICA’S POLITICAL GERONTOCRACY
It’s long past due that we have a serious national conversation about age. More specifically, we need to face hard facts about age and leadership. We have, in effect, become a gerontocracy — a country governed by old people.
