This is the guy in charge of our Nanny State? Good Lord, my grandkids'll be paying for this until they die of old age. (Note that [Sponsor's Name Here]'s Official Son, Mitten, looks particularly rough.)
The thousands of you - well, make that the 18 of you that actually read my blog post from last week - may be wondering how the pre-Hallowe'en weekend worked out. Well, do I have a story for you...

Since I've been to Reno five times (and Reno isn't really that big) I know the city well enough to occasionally glance at the Reno Gazette Journal and read some of the local news. For example, when the Mitzpah hotel burned down in October 2006 and killed 12 people, I knew exactly where that hotel was located. This past summer when fires threatened Lake Tahoe's southern shore, again, I knew the affected area and now check in on the reconstruction of the area.
