MGM Mirage Senior Vice President Paula Gentile will lead the 33-member commission that is charged with improving Nevada’s judicial system.

I don’t know Ms. Gentile and have no reason to believe she is anything but ethical, honorable, and an outstanding citizen. But the idea of having this committee chaired by counsel for one of the big players in an industry that has done more to corrupt Nevada government than all others industries combined strikes me as absurd. Did the folks making this appointment really not see the obvious conflict of interest?

It would be almost funny if it wasn’t so sad. :<(
