Nevada looks across its western border with envy and wonder. It envies California's massive economy, one of the world's greatest. It can only wonder, though, about the way Gov. Pete Wilson and assorted others bad-mouth their own state, calling California a lousy place to do business, overregulated, overtaxed, blah blah blah. Well, Nevadans aren't dumb.

Already home to a major gaming industry, Nevada is preparing to take its expertise online after officials rapidly approved a law to become the first state in the nation to authorize what could become one of the most lucrative gambling markets still to be tapped. At the bill signing held in the same Capitol room where lawmakers legalized gambling some 80 years ago, Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval formally put his signature to the law Thursday. By quickly moving the bill through the Legislature, Nevada gets ahead of rival New Jersey in the race to win the first slot in the online poker business, where billions of dollars are being wagered domestically and tens of billions of dollars are bet from around the world.

Women make up 27% of the Nevada Legislature, a quarter of the congressional delegation and 70% of the state university and school boards.
