Fly Me To The Moon From The Lehigh Valley Airport
Believe it or not, I'm trying to become less acidic in my criticism of public officials, both elected and appointed. While the elected ones have been submitted to some public scrutiny, the appointed ones are usually the wrong people in the right place. Among the most useless of the boards may be the Airport Authority. While just bailing themselves out from a two decade mistake, they embark on another unjustified expansion.
If the local airport has any advantage, it is that it is easy. While it's essentially expensive flights to nowhere, at least it's easy. When you enter the arriving baggage area, the car rental desks are right there. If you want a cab, merely go through the doors and look left. I suppose all that was too convenient, because the LVIA will now build a separate Transportation Hub.
If this seems like just another unnecessary fix to something that isn't broken, it gets worse. Several months ago, I questioned one of the most informed authority members about this proposal, and he knew nothing about it.
