Mayor Goodman made the mistake of not quitting when ahead. She should have stopped when she said to reopen in a responsible manner.


She should just ask for a simple graph with numbers, dates and a time frame for opening.

Easy to read, easy to understand. Benchmarks.

Sisolakís press conference yesterday was the most non informative talk Iíve ever seen someone give on the subject of how and when. Utterly useless.

He was totally disinterested on anything related to when.

The guidelines are 14 days of lowering the curve and there being one new infection per million. Would you like to give a date that will happen? It's not as if it will happen three days after the first full moon.
Science says to wait. The guidelines say to wait.The President says to wait. Because some madman does something, do you want us to follow him?

1 new infection per million tested? Or 1 new infection per million based on a state population of 3.1 million?

Thatís 3 cases or less per day for 14 straight days. If it goes over....the 14 days starts again?

This city will never open.

Most political leaders and cable news personalities are so math-challenged, that they don't understand the implications of numbers or have the ability to place them in a larger picture.

If the Wizard was mayor, Vegas might be in better shape during this pandemic.
So many better men, a few of them friends, were dead. And a thousand thousand slimy things lived on, and so did I.

Anybody else watching Mayor Goodman making a fool of herself while being interviewed by Anderson Cooper on CNN? This may have set back any Vegas reopening for who knows how long.

Iím trying to get a handle on what they are looking for in Vegas. Not generalities. Not words like sufficient or flatten....give me something I can track.

1 per 1 million? What does that mean? For how long?

No, no one ever trusts or respects her or takes her seriously.

How can YOU get a handle on it when they can't get a handle on it themselves.

Read the guidelines. They seem pretty cut and dry.
Has Nevada had 14 days of new cases declining?
Have new patients dropped for 14 days in a row?
Have deaths ?
I don't know about Nevada, but Arizona had 280 new cases, or about 35 per million.
Guidelines call for one new case per million.

Expecting to be able to safely open the casinos in the next few weeks is unrealistic. Opening them while the North East and the West Coast are still locked down, along with no foreign tourist, is economic madness.
