This was one of the first things we saw when we flew to Alaska last July, and I must say that it was sad and depressing to see their airport named after Ted “Internet = tubes but not trucks” Stevens. Unfortunately clear and public demonstrations of gross ignorance of material central to a committee that he chairs didn’t really change anything; incompetence has rarely done much damage to a politician,
Now, however, we have all sorts of exciting scandal brewing (here, there, and elsewhere), and it’s fairly clear that his nearly 40 year run in the U.S. Senate has included more than a little shuffling of the cards under the table. Maybe this will be enough to cause the fine folk of Alaska have second thoughts about their airport naming strategy (if not their voting strategy).
Now how do we get Ray-gun’s name off that much more significant airport in D.C.?No tag for this post.
