Name a mountain after Ronald Reagan? The Devil you say!

I think Reagen is much more profane than the Devil.

Can I rename Yucca Mountain, the nuclear dump, the Dubya mountain?

Agreed, and yes.

This newsbit has me proud to have a tiny, adorable, sweet-looking female cat named Diablo.

Please do!
I think that this is part of the 'English only' movement. They want the Spanish 'diablo' to simply be translated into its English equivalent 'Reagan.'
That may be the funniest thing I've read all day....

I am never going to buy a Spanish-English dictionary from you. You'd have me tell someone my hovercraft is full of eels.
Do you want to come back to my place, bouncy-bouncy?

Perhaps a compromise -- Mount Diablo-Reagan
Well, They already named an aircraft carrier after him. I do think a landfill would have been more appropriate.
