GSO is great, but the people in charge of the airport and the city leaders are all jerks in my book. Getting FedEx to come in and build a transportation hub was one of the worst decisions ever made. It's going to require a very costly third runway, which will only be used for three hours a day. Who will pay? Taxpayers. The benefits of the new FedEx hub come nowhere close to offsetting the cost of the new roads and runway, nor repay the thousands of people whose homes have dropped in value since the hub was announced.

Hey Bryan, I agree with you about the FedEx thing - sort of. I think that they should have payed more attention to the public, but with all the improvements to the airport, it (larger airport, FedEx) will help industry, public (even though they don't think so, and the airport. With a larger and more modern airport, good maintaince facilities, a cargo hub, a terminal that can expand, and a larger population of people and business, it should help the airport grow and possibly get a small airline hub, which would greatly help the public.
