The initial reaction of the public at large is that the Adelsons, Wynns, Herbsts and Fertittas “owe” Nevada a great deal because it is Nevada who made them the financial successes that they are.  My assumption would be that these multi-billionaires sincerely and reasonably believe that it is they who built Nevada, not Nevada that built their fortunes.  I agree that not one of these individuals “owes” Nevada anything.  That being so, what argument do we use to persuade them to give substantial amounts of their wealth to UNLV?
