The history of airports (aerodromes in Lexism!) has been thus:
1. An aerodrome is built. Pilots fly. They are happy.
2. People build homes around said aerodrome.
3. People in the homes complain about aircraft noise. They are not happy.
4. Pilots have to restrict their flight or in some cases close the aerodrome.
I am once again reminded of how much I miss the expanded commenting community that Lex assembled. So much knowledge, so much pure unadulterated snark.
It was a joy to behold.
And I wonder if commenter “Emily” ever came back to the blog after that. With her stated military connections and all…
I don’t recall ever seein’ her again, Kris. But she sure left a mark on Lex with her “southern lady” comment.
Ah but Buck – maybe she became a lurker. There were so many of them. Who knows…
And yes, her southern lady comment fit into the general snark very well indeed.
Who would name his child “Charlie Brown”?
