One of the reasons why Vegas is going broke is that its politicians have decided to be woke. When we were there in July, all bars were closed unless they were also restaurants. I don’t know why, but Democrats (who claim to the the party of science) seem to believe that I can catch COVID if I have a sandwich and a beer while in a bar, but I can’t catch it if I have a couple of Margaritas and some chips while sitting in a restaurant.
Anyway, the Clark county commission has voted to change the name of Las Vegas’ McCarran airport (LAS) to the Harry Reid airport. Apparently, this is because MCCarron, who was a Nevada Senator from 1933 to 1954, was instrumental in bringing aviation to the state, but had racist beliefs when viewed through the lens of today’s standards.
I guess Harry Reid gets a pass for saying that Obama was a great candidate for President because he was just “black enough” as a “light-skinned” African-American “with no Negro dialect, unless he wanted to have one.”
