Oh, Hell No!!!

They can't be serious.
From the LVRJ: Multiple speakers told a Senate panel on Friday that they would be proud to fly through Harry Reid Las Vegas International Airport if a name change proposal became a reality.
Speakers ranging from Assemblyman Nelson Araujo to DREAMer Astrid Silva testified in support of Senate Bill 174 before the Senate Government Affairs Committee.
Letters of support were also submitted from MGM Resorts International and Caesars Entertainment, as well as from congressional representatives, including U.S. Sen. Catherine Cortez Masto and Representatives Ruben Kihuen and Jacky Rosen.
There were opponents, as well, with several focusing not so much on Reid as on the attack on current airport namesake Sen. Pat McCarran, who served Nevada for decades in various public offices....
Las Vegas resident Rob Lauer said Nevadans should be ashamed for attacking McCarran, who served the state for 50 years in the state Assembly, as a member of the state Supreme Court and as a U.S. senator.
McCarran served in the Senate from 1933 to 1954, when he died of a heart attack.
In a statement after the hearing, Assembly Minority Floor Leader Paul Anderson, R-Las Vegas, said others are more deserving of such an honor.
“Former Senator Harry Reid’s legacy is one of bitterness, anger, petulance, divisive political maneuvering and pure partisanship,” Anderson said.
There is no way that the airport should be named after Reid.  Reid is a proven liar, a hater, a racist and does not have an ethical bone in his sad and sorry body.  
If they do change the name of the airport, just name it Las Vegas International Airport.
