Wealthiest Cities[edit]

I'm removing this phrase from the intro section:
"and is one of the wealthiest major cities in the country"
The listed source:
http://m.reviewjournal.com/trending/silver-state/las-vegas-one-wealthiest-big-cities-us
is misleading. In that source it says "Here are the 33 wealthiest cities in America with populations greater than 500,000" - but there are only 34 cities TOTAL with populations greater than 500,000 (not sure why Detroit isn't on their list) - and Las Vegas comes in at #16 - right in the middle.

@Bporter28: Please note the above. The cited article actually shows that Las Vegas is approximately average in terms of wealth among large cities, which hardly seems worth mentioning. Toohool (talk) 19:03, 28 August 2015 (UTC)

Winchester, Nevada,unincorporated should be added to list of nearby communities. Also in that list, Enterprise should be listed as Enterprise, Nevada for consistency. 70.106.253.61 (talk) 01:41, 14 March 2016 (UTC)

Climate[edit]

We must check the data for climate. Something's wrong there, or confused.--181.27.135.19 (talk) 03:12, 23 June 2016 (UTC)
