Issue: July 30, 2015
Y'all are going to have to bear with me a bit because my brain is a
little fried. We're still in the middle of tallying up all the votes
for our annual The Biggest Little Best of Northern Nevada readers'
poll. Thousands of you voted in hundreds of categories, ranging from
Best Reno Restaurant to Best Public Figure to Fantasize About. It's
an enormous undertaking to tally up and double-check all the votes,
and it's made all the more complicated by the fact that you RN&R
readers, who normally seem like such a smart bunch, what with your
refined taste in reading material and all, seem incapable of
correctly using a drop-down menu or correctly spelling the names of
the people and the businesses you purport to love. Jerks.
Anyway. The results will be in next week's issue. First, this week,
we've got a nice feature story by Kelsey Fitzgerald about the hawks
who live in Northern Nevada and what us bipedal primate residents can
learn from our feathered predator neighbors. Personally, the story
evoked the desire to imagine myself as a hawk, soaring above the
city, leaving my troubles behind, devouring the small and the helpless.
Also in this week's issue, special projects editor Georgia Fisher
wrote about solar power, news editor Dennis Myers finds that rumors
of the Great Recession's death have been greatly exaggerated, and our
movie guy, Bob, made the miraculous discovery that the new Adam
Sandler movie is just as cruddy as you would expect.
As always, be sure to pick up a newsprint copy of the paper for
exclusive columns, cartoons and faces on which to practice drawing mustaches.
Thanks for reading! If it weren't for you, we'd have no reason to go
cross-eyed tallying up these damned votes! Best Of results are coming
