  • Editorial: Trump attack breathtaking in its vileness

    Editor’s note: The following editorial is from The Dallas Morning News and was originally published on June 6.

    Donald Trump’s presidential campaign is littered with more insults and disrespect than anyone can count. Now he’s added a racist assault on a member of the federal judiciary to his hit list. Has he no respect for anyone or institution?

  • Work of Art: Going star-craving mad

    Let’s get kids to read

    Get kids to read during the summer — we’re hearing this message from the recent Optic editorial (May 25), from the Optic’s lead article by the editor “Stopping the Summer Slide” on the Governor’s initiative to “entice” kids to read, and everywhere.

    Right here in Las Vegas, the same message is loud and clear:  make sure that all kids have good books to read this summer. And here is an answer.
