A floppy-haired, dimple-chinned political operative with a disarming Southern drawl, Mr. Ayers, Vice President Mike Pence’s chief of staff, resembles an ambitious “House of Cards” character who wandered onto the set of the Trump reality show. It is no accident that his name keeps resurfacing as a possible twist in the plotline. And that twist is the belief among many Republicans in Washington that Mr. Ayers, 36, is simply biding his time working for Mr. Pence until the day he moves up to work for Mr. Trump … [Read more...] about Nick Ayers Is Rising Fast in Trump’s Washington.

By Camalot Todd (contact) Saturday, Oct. 27, 2018 | 2 a.m. Mark Ferdowsian’s hands tell the story of his life. They’ve swum the scalding waters of a restaurant’s dishwater at age 15, they’ve felt oil splatter against them as a fry cook, they’ve held his newborn children, flipped pages of thick medical textbooks, tended to wounds in an emergency room, and provided medical care to those who desperately need it in the Las Vegas area at one of his five Sunset Clinics.
