On Tuesday, Gov. Jim Gibbons invited President Barack Obama to meet with him. In a polite letter, Gibbons said he understood Obama would be in town in May and that he hoped the president could find time to meet with the governor and various business leaders to talk about finding ways to help Nevada's ailing tourism economy.
That was the invite.
Then came the caustically written news release that Gibbons' office put out the same day that was about as inviting as a loaded bear trap.
