So what will high-profile Nevadans be giving thanks for on Thursday? I happen to know: ►Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid: For John Boehner’s Tea Party anarchists. For Sharron Angle (never stop thanking God for her). For being able to interview political editor candidates at the Las Vegas Sun. ►Sen. Dean Heller: For re-election being five years away.

Former chancellor: UNLV must look outside for next president, regent "ignorant" for suggesting hiring of insider
