Thought you might be interested in this profile of Pat Mulroy in today's Las Vegas Sun (the liberal alternative to the Review-Journal, a real conservative 'rag'):
In this, the second in a 5-part series on the Southwest water woes, Mulroy is portrayed as 'Scarlett O'Hara', determined that Las Vegas would never be without water. If there is an indictment of her tenure it might be this decision from the early 1990s:
"This was her "New Paradigm," and it went like this: With Mulroy at the water company and Bunker and a number of her staff on the river commission, Las Vegas would just keep building above and beyond the capacity of its river allocation.
It was a Las Vegas-sized dare. The logic: Defy the limits under Nevada's Colorado River allocation. Dare the six other states on the Colorado River, the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation and its overseer the Interior secretary to not give them more water."

session of forward looking research.....

Dear Friends,On Monday, December 17, 2007, Governor Jon Corzine signed the historic New Jersey death penalty abolition bill. It was a good day. I have some reflections on the campaign that led to this wonderful moment but first, a little "housekeeping."
