Reid is the one who shouldn't have his name on anything.

So, what's he going to do about the major road in Reno named "McCarran Blvd."???

I wonder if that includes the Grand Kleagel Robert Byrd

Now it starts in Vegas!

When I grew up in Atlanta, many streets were named for Confederate Leaders and Generals and other Civic Leaders.

Now those names have been changed to Black Icons.

Reid will probably pull off this name change.

Probably .0001% of anybody knows who in hell McCarran was in the first place so who cares? Las Vegas is nothing more than a sheethole with rhinestones and glitter anyway.
I wouldn’t put Harry Reid’s name on an outhouse.

Senator Pat McCarran (D-Nev.) was instrumental in exposing Soviet espionage while he headed the Senate Internal Security Subcommittee. It’s interesting that Reid—who sits in his seat—dislikes him so intensely.

I believe Sammy Davis was a Republican. Maybe the airport will be named for Owen Lattimore, one of McCarran's "victims."

In Godfather II? When I saw it, I thought the inspiration was Alan Bible (D-Nev.) or maybe George "Molly" Malone (R-Nev.), but Geary's personality didn't correspond to either one's.

If we’re going to name the airport for Harry Reid, we need to have his name changed to Sen. Crappy McToiletface, and THEN rename the airport for him.

A tiny ray of hope......Las Vegas isn’t your run-of-the-mill burg when it comes to No Nonesense law and order.

Vegas is the town that put OJ in the slammer when California and the Feds couldn’t or wouldn’t do it.

Reid wouldn't want that. Sinatra and Martin were Reagan supporters.

I care. I consider McCarran a Cold War hero who helped rid Washington of Russian spies.

Las Vegas has some great eateries outside the tourist area such as Cugino's delicatessen on Maryland Parkway, owned by an Italian family--not by Middle Easterners, as are many "Italian" eateries in Southern California. Teriyaki Time, which is nearby, has good Japanese-Korean food. And at lunch time, Rincon Criollo on Las Vegas Blvd. is filled with Cubans who know where to find good Cuban cuisine.
