A colleague at my company's DC office remarked that a lot of locals are incensed that National was renamed Reagan-National by congress. Nobody calls it Reagan-National, the conducters on the metro go out of their way to call it National and not Reagan - National and (acc to colleague) the Metro authority has refused to update the maps, so now congress is threatening them with a loss of subsidies.
Can any local DC people verify this story.
PS, I don't mean to pass judgement on Reagan as president, the Dems vs. GOP, or any other aspect of US political controversies. I just thought it an interesting local aviation related story I heard.
I may be ugly. I may be an American. But don't call me an ugly American.
