$2.2 Million for a Few Clueless Travelers

Written by Jeff Johnson on July 9th, 2009. Posted in General

A committee of the Metropolitan Airports Commission voted unanimously yesterday to approve $2.2 million for new signs directing travelers to the two airport terminals. According to a Star Tribune story, the committee approved funds for 16 signs with the words “Terminal 1” and “Terminal 2” to replace signs that now say “Lindbergh” and “Humphrey.” Twenty-eight other signs would list the names of airlines at each terminal.

In addition, the MAC is looking to spend $185,000 for a public relations effort to inform the public of these changes before they are made.

Perception of Tea Parties was Incorrect

This wasn’t about taxes or guns or name-your-right-wing-bogeyman. It was about a federal government gone berserk.

I’ve found it entertaining to watch the media and those of a liberal political bent (sorry if I’m being redundant) paint the Tea Parties that took place recently around the country as an amalgamation of seething right-wing kooks carrying “I ♥ my AK-47” signs.

I was at the Tea Party in St. Paul. I apparently hung out at the wrong end of the Capital grounds, though, because I missed all of those angry, extremist, Obama-haters who I’m told were there.
