I support Harry Reid in most things, so I was upset with his determination to push the DesertXpress concept. Why would anyone in Las Vegas, seeking to go to Southern California, take a train to Victorville and then rent a car to complete the journey?
Sounds foolish, right?
Then I turned it around. He is not pushing this for us to visit Southern California! It is for the Californians to travel to Victorville, park the cars in a secure place, and then take the train into Las Vegas.
Not only would this be faster, eliminating the I-15 hassle, but also reduce the vehicular traffic in the resort corridor. When here, most would hire taxis rather than rent a car, another boost to the working person.
My faith in Harry Reid has been restored.
