The problem with the monorail is its connectivity. Tie it to the airport and watch out. However, what ramifications will result to the taxi industry?

I still feel it should connect to the airport. It is useless otherwise. If it's goal is only to connect hotel properties, then the hotels should pay for it. I have yet to see a tourist say, "Gee, I wish there was a fairly hidden alternative transport system to get me from the Sahara hotel to some other hotel further south on the strip."

I think a great deal of these comments reflect the intellect of our problems. We criticize our government for not being diversified enough, then make these comments allowing a liquor store in our airport.

The airport is our gateway for out-of-town guests. We talk about wanting diversity in our economy, but yet we advertise that the indulgent side of Las Vegas is everywhere.

I do not support this issue. I do not have a problem with alcohol, gaming, etc. They all have their place here in Las Vegas. That being said, they all have their place. I have the right to raise my kids devoid of these items. I do not frequent establishments that have blatant sexual themes. I have never tried to close them down either.

Alcohol sales in Las Vegas will not soar nor plummet here due to this issue. The amount of revenue to the airport will not save any jobs or create any significant ones. Another comment stated it well, the alcohol is being served already. Show me the comment cards stating that tourists are no longer coming to Las Vegas because they could not buy packaged liquor fast enough.

There are rightful places for everything. Setting an example by placing this in our airport will accomplish very little in regards to financial impact, but create an atmosphere where once again Las Vegas fails to prepare for diversity.
