Of Airports and Committees...

Here in beautiful San Diego County, there's a committee of 32 people being paid to study the issue of where to put a new airport, which will be needed by 2012. After millions of dollars spent to "study" where to put it, they narrowed the search down to nine sites. Problem is, five of them are on military bases!

To be fair, one of those is an Air Reserve Base, which could be available, but - - the other sites simply are not available. One is aboard Camp Pendleton, two at Miramar Air Station, and one on North Island Air Station.

Every time someone points out how it's a bad idea to try to put an airport there, they talk about what a great site this one or that one is. Has no-one pointed out yet that they CAN'T put an airport in any of those sites?
