Letter to the editor: Reid's son lobbying for solar money

Tuesday, April 22, 2014 - 12:01 am

Poor Harry Reid. At the point of a gun, he has been drawn into the cattle war in Nevada.

He says, “It’s not over yet.”

The first truthful words he has spoke for some time. Of course, he has an ace up his sleeve.

His son is a lobbyist for the solar energy industry, which is planning a huge solar farm in Nevada. Like Boone and Buffett, they want a part of the “gold mine” (taxpayer money) that supports 90 percent of proven inefficient solar and wind turbine costs. Oh, what a great country we live in! It can continue going to pot, as long as the “in” folks get to fill theirs.
