Monday, Oct. 23, 2006 | Lindbergh Field does not work now – so we have lots of small planes landing much too often because the fields cannot manage large passenger or cargo aircraft. We catch plains to cities that have real airports to get where we need to go, as do our tourists, our cargo shipments, or mail, and people who might want to do business here and help create jobs paying a livable wage.
Lindbergh is incredibly convenient to get to – and in and out of – for many of us, but we will stay a second rate economic center until we are connected to the rest of the world via an adequate airport. So if not now – when? If not there, wherever there is, then where else? Or do we really need yet another endless study and regurgitated report to make the obvious more obvious and more expensive.
