WHAT DO you need? Come on, what do you need?" Bob Stupak is holding court in a well-padded corner booth at Kelly & Cohen, one of the four restaurants on the premises of his hotel-casino empire. It's shortly after 5 in the afternoon on a Tuesday, but the work of a casino magnate is never done--not in Las Vegas, anyway, and certainly not at Bob Stupak's Vegas World, one of the busiest casinos in town. "What's the problem?" Stupak asks as two of his associates approach him for a chat.

This city's two daily newspapers have been battering each other for more than half a century -- chasing the same stories, fighting over the best journalists and slinging published insults in the particularly plain-spoken manner that Las Vegans seem to love.

Nevada's biggest evening newspaper, the Las Vegas Sun, has agreed to be folded into its much larger morning rival, the Las Vegas Review-Journal. The unusual deal would make the Sun a six-to-10-page section within the larger paper seven days a weeks and allow it to maintain its liberal editorial voice. Brian Greenspun, the Sun's president and editor, told his paper's 80-member staff about the publishing agreement at a meeting Tuesday.

I have read the editorial with some disappointment. The editors, as well as innumerable academicians, hold the belief that a teacher, in order to be an effective one, should have the knowledge of the subject matter, as well as the knowledge of how to teach well. I am certainly in favor of the first requisite, but I am not too sure about the second one. People generally think that the art of good teaching consists of a set of rules: Do this, do that, etc.

Usually, a proposal to merge two newspapers into a monopoly evokes all kinds of protests. But so far in this desert city, the plan to merge the Las Vegas Sun and Review Journal, while keeping separate news and editorial staffs, has barely generated so much as a spark amid the local neon. Sergio Lalli, managing editor of the Nevada Casino Journal, a trade magazine covering the gaming industry, has taken out small ads in both papers trying to raise a protest.

Some of those Hank Greenspun afflicted during his life have a joke that they tell even now. At his funeral in July, a crowd of more than 1,200--gamblers, politicians, friends and employees--came to stand in the 100-degree desert sun. Some were there to say farewell, the joke goes, others to make sure he was really dead. But a month later, Greenspun had the last laugh.

The Greenspuns also own the Las Vegas Sun newspaper. Times Mirror did not disclose terms of the deal but said it expects to realize a gain on the sale, which is subject to regulatory approval.
