You already know Las Vegas has one of the country’s worst economies. Now, a new report takes things further. The Brookings Institution, which is based in Washington but has a local research arm, said Tuesday that the Las Vegas Valley has the world’s fifth-worst economy.

Sharron Angle, the vanquished Republican challenger to Sen. Harry Reid, depicted herself in her brochures as a conservative warrior, driving her old pickup truck, brandishing a firearm.
