Typical - what a sh**-hole to live in - LV is essentially last in everything good and tops in everything bad.

To retain their jobs, Harry Reid and Shelley Berkeley, with the aid of Brian Greenspun and the Sun trump up all sorts of false fears and twist Obama's arm to kill the Yucca Mt. project - the only thing that actually brought engineers and scientists into the Las Vegas area. Why else would they come here - certainly not for the intellectual stimulation of living in this place.

Honestly ask yourselves - who would want to raise a family here? All of this kerfuffle for concern about a mythical farmer living in the desert who could possibly receive the equivalent of 1 chest x-ray per year, 500,000 years in the future. I sure am concerned about this guy and hope that the rest of the LV population is equally concerned and satisfied.

Harry has made certain that all of these people have left the state, leaving Las Vegas with lots of heat, no water, casino workers, waitresses and people parking cars.

Good luck my friends and thank you for voting these self-serving characters into office.

One thing I know for sure. Harry Reid definitely destroyed about 2000 jobs averaging $60k/job at the Yucca Mt. project, also placing another 1000+ houses on the LV market. The ironic thing is that LV loses these jobs and probably the most highly-educated work force it has ever had, while most of these people simply up and leave because they are able to find jobs in other cities, leaving everyone here to hold the bag. The really sad part is the loss of thousands of future, high paying, long-term jobs and an industry based on science, not gambling. The Sun has been complicit in all of this as its owners attempt to assist democratic friends in high places.

All of this because Harry feels it will get your vote, not because he is afraid of the environmental or health consequences of the repository. The NRC will soon issue their opinion that the YM repository would not have posed health issues or transportation issues. Of course, this verdict will be released AFTER the election.

If this ticks you off, exercise your vote against Harry Reid in about 6 weeks.

I am so pleased to read that the Sun issues a "holier than thou" decree calling for independent scientists when it comes to evaluating issues in someone else's neighborhood!

They completely rejected the science from the independent scientists from the US National Laboratories regarding Yucca Mountain. The word has it that the Nuclear Regulatory Commission will issue a favorable opinion regarding the work and safety of these scientists in their License review in November (of course, this opinion is being repressed prior to the election so Harry Reid won't suffer any indignity. The State of Nevada wants it permanently repressed).

The Sun never dissapoints in its ability to make my eyes roll.

Mr. Birdman:

Your lack of intelligence is glowing in the dark....Have you actually ever been to the Nevada Test Site - or anywhere in central Nevada? Not exactly what I would call a teeming metropolis. Yeesh, what a dope, but thoroughly entertaining - thank you.

At any rate, as much as one can't stand Mark Sanford, I have to agree with him on this one. I am certainly glad some elected officials are willing to stand up and state exactly what a hypocrite our president is on this one.

Are we also going to restore all of the huge craters left by near-surface nuclear explosions on the test site? How about the portal and lay-down areas from the many underground tunnels in Ranier Mesa where weapons were shot?

I agree - inane articles like this make my head hurt. It bothers me that reporters like this are given marching orders to write such drivel.

Why isn't King Harry and the Sun sychophants jumping up and down requiring we immediately reclaim these area? The reason - they don't care because it doesn't serve their political purpose.

Mr. vanLuik is exactly correct - the biggest environmental disaster to the southern Nevada desert ecosystem is the Las Vegas valley and its never-ending need for electric power and water. Where is the Sun writing investigatory articles on the LV Water Authority and its stealing of water from other parts of the state?

Blows my mind
