Driving a cab here in Vegas, too often, I've found the people at the Venetian and Sands Expo to be rude and obnoxious. Thus, I'm definitely disinclined to stage there. Compare a comparable property, the Wynn, where I've found the people there almost always conducting themselves in a friendly and courteous manner, even in hectic situations. Next time one of Adelson's properties has a full porch of passengers and no taxis to transport them, don't be too surprised.

Smell some rotten apples in the cart?

Want to upset it?

Vote Laurie Bisch for Sheriff. Vote for Don Chairez for District Attorney. They are our best hopes, if we want to have the fairest and most principled criminal justice system.

No doubt this Board's top concern is about health . . . the financial health of the providers who control it, that is.

Look no further than this story to discover why the U.S. is fast becoming a failed state. Unfortunately, this is just another instance of the foxes lording over the hen house, those with an inherent conflict of interest infesting a governmental entity for the primary purpose of protecting their pocketbooks.

The real insult to this injury? That average citizens are forced to fund this form of arrogant abuse!

If we the people want to take our government back, straightening out this industry patsy 'Board of Health' would be one great place to start.

Driver performance needs to be evaluated not only by the gross amount that a cabbie books but by the number of trips. For instance, if a driver is within 15% of average in trips during the course of one month for his or her shift, a company would have no cause to terminate for low performance.

Keeping close to the average in trips is one indication that the driver is, in fact, out there working to get rides. This protects the honest drivers. In an industry that's become so heavily regulated, this provision should be one that the Taxicab Authority could mandate.

Don't be surprised if the long hauling decreases and we have a much happier cabbing public, with a lot of drivers wanting to do right by their passengers feeling more secure in their position.

It might be nice to know who the construction company is and how the deal was struck to reduce traffic down to one lane. This effectively turned southbound traffic on the strip into a parking lot around 1:30 am! Was that really necessary?
