If you missed it, the BBC’s “The World Today” was broadcasting yesterday from The Waterfront Bar & Grill. (No word on whether the Brits went for the sodium-a-licious pastrami burger.)
BBC anchor George Arney chatted with KPBS’s Tom Fudge on “These Days” during his visit. They touched on the airport debate. Check it out.
Tom Fudge: “I guess you’re going to be talking about our great guffuffle over the airport.”
George Arney: “We are. It’s not something we were aware of until we got here. Talking to one of your reporters in fact made us very interested in where is San Diego going. Is it going to remain this city which is so linked with the U.S. military or does it need to outgrow that? The airport debate seems to be the epicenter of that at the moment.
I think that’s of great interest to our listeners around the world. Because the U.S. military and American public perceptions of the U.S. military is something that’s continually in people’s minds around the world because the U.S. military is playing such a major role in Iraq and Afghanistan.”
Arney continued: “But it’s not just all the serious stuff. I was at the (Del Mar) races yesterday. Fantastic.”
(I just took a listen to the BBC broadcast from yesterday. Arney didn’t talk about the airport.)
