The topic of Kansas City's proposed new airport comes back into play tonight . . .
Let’s Not Follow Cincinnati’s Lead On Airports
Show-Me the money quote . . .
"The cost of building a new airport has contributed to making travel to and from there more expensive, so travelers seek other venues in neighboring cities. A new airport does not attract business, as proponents claim — quite the opposite. (Proponents of building a new terminal at MCI already complain about losing market share to neighboring airports. This would only make it worse.) Remember, Chiquita left Cincinnati seven years after their airport renovation and partly because of reduced air service.
Now Cincinnati airport consultants want to do to Kansas City what has been done to Cincinnati."
The Save KCI blog comes at it from a different angle . . .

We like Kevin's post because it relays a personal experience regarding the airport discussion proving that critics can have an "adult discussion" even if Kansas City politicos don't like answering questions.
