An intresting and possibly telling editorial in today's 'Comical'. The last quote is the most chilling.
"Mayor White and Continental Airlines CEO Larry Kellner met last week with the Chronicle's editorial board and detailed the economic difficulties that would be created by permanently tying the city's enterprise funds to a revenue and spending ceiling."
"As for the airports, White says, defeat of Prop G would make it more difficult to expand facilities and make necessary capital improvements. A situation could be created in which city officials would have to choose between expanding aviation facilities and hiring more police."
"Kellner says Continental wants to use bigger aircraft at Bush Intercontinental, "but that takes more gate space, parking, more concessions and terminal size." If the airline cannot expand here, the CEO says, it would be forced to look elsewhere for that growth."
The whole editorial,
While I do not care for these tactics, IAH's future growth is too important, so I will be voting for 'G'.
