Georgia Senate study committee to consider 'secondary airport hub'
My how the goalposts have moved through the years. It used to be that most people wanted a second airport and that Delta was the only reason it didn't happen. Now it's that if you want to re-evaluate a 2nd airport you must hate Delta.

Because nothing they're doing makes any sense when put into context.

1. Delta just entered into an agreement in good faith that there would be no consideration of a 2nd airport until at least 2036. It would reflect very poorly on both the city and the state to renege on that agreement.

2. Hartsfield-Jackson is very well run under the current administrative structure. Delta's CEO has said this much, as their finances have never been better thanks to maximizing ATL's economies of scale. If this weren't the case, they would have went crying to the state long ago, or even left the state altogether. The state has no legitimate justification for attempting to take it over, other than for political gain.

What should it be part of?
It should be its own authority, like so many other airports.

All I want from a governor is that they do not declare war on Atlanta. Why is that too much to ask?

I just said it's funny how times and perception change. Nothing more, nothing less.

What are you basing that on exactly? Is it the poster's response to the article? They are an individual and hardly speak for most people. Is it the article? The article was pretty neutral in reporting on what has happened.

If indeed perception has changed, why is it funny? Perceptions and opinions are always changing.

Goodness gracious. I didn't know what I find funny could draw so much attention. It was a throwaway comment that is not worth any serious discussion.

You prefaced the funny comment with goal posts being moved. Didn't seem throwaway but understood.

Bribery and collusion are the life blood of any municipal administration!
Did anyone expect anything else?
This is the "Tax them, bribe me" government.
