The Strip is bulging with casinos, traffic, loud music, and flashing billboards. But there are parts of rural Nevada where people live far from bright lights - often in the middle-of-nowhere. What is the appeal of that rural life? What does it inspire in people emotionally and creatively? And what parts of the Wild West do we preserve far from the blazing lights of Las Vegas?
GUESTS Steve Litsinger, co-owner, Churchill Butte Organics Susan Church, artist Carolyn Dufurrena, writer and educator
As a product of the Nevada education system I have constantly felt short-handed in terms of the quality of education. Finally, when I got into UNLV I felt I was finally getting the education that I have been longing for. But it just so happens that, again, I'm being told by this place that education does not matter as I am a philosophy major. It feels as though I am in this morbid Nevadan educational nightmare.Sky –Mar 10, 2011 09:47:36 AM
