New Nevada governor apparently in panic already

This just in, via today's Progressive Review:
KOLO TV, NV - Saying security concerns prompted him to take office as soon as possible, Republican Jim Gibbons was sworn in as Nevada governor seconds after the New Year opened at midnight Monday. . . Immediately after his oath-taking, Gibbons named Larry Martines, who has had a long career in police and security work -- including work for the CIA -- as the state homeland security director; and law enforcement veteran Phil Galeoto as state Department of Public Safety director.
But why? Sure, one tactic used to gain support for the unfortunate war in Iraq is to keep Americans in a constant state of fear, but short of the whole state being turned into a pillar of salt, what threat faces Nevada that couldn't wait till morning?
