    Our governor is an idiot. He is so bad, there is talk that another Republican will run against him in the next election. Sadly, a local ding dong was largely responsible for getting gay marriage banned here in Nevada by the voters. For all the talk of Nevada being wild, we aren't really, lots of Mormons here. The funny part is that Las Vegas is a prime location for people to get married and had Nevada legalized it, the state could have made tons of money. icon_rolleyes.gif

    This is great news, Nevada is at least starting to move in the right direction on gay rights despite the unfortunate gay marriage ban. Hopefully that will be put up before the voters again and that ban is overturned, that is if gay marriage supporters have their act together and try to defeat the Mormon Church at its anti-gay efforts.
