  • Revolution Church comes to Vegas
    While waiting for the film “Pan’s Labyrinth” to start at the Monday film screening in the Whiskey Attic upstairs from Freaking Frog, we struck up a conversation with a clear-eyed, handsome young man on a mission. Seems that Pastor Ralph is concerned about the dwindling numbers of young people who attend church, so he’s hooked up with Jay Bakker...

  • Gem & Jewelery Show
    Don’t know about you, but I love sparkles. Marilyn taught us that diamonds are a girl’s best friend and, although that just might be a little over the top, I don’t know many women whose eye is not caught by light reflecting off a brilliant stone – real or otherwise. Certainly Vegas is the place to strut your stuff, whether on fingers, belts, sandals...

  • Tropicana Cinemas is re-opened
    This probably is not all that news-worthy for most of you, but I felt especially saddened by the closure of Las Vegas’ only independent movie theatre a couple of months ago. It happened in the midst of the CineVegas Art House Screening Series, who had to hustle to find a new venue at Neonopolis literally from one day to the next. But it looks like the Tropicana...

  • FDA and Drugs That Kill
    I took a lot of flack about my article on the FDA and drugs. The book I recommended by Kevin Trudeau, I was told, was written by a charlatan with no credentials other than he had made bucketsful of money selling himself as one of the gurus of the self-improvement age. Having made lots of dough promoting yourself, to my mind, demonstrates having a real good sense of what...
