@9:00, you hit on the reason that every place that built this exact design back in the 70s and 80s is now replacing it with "pods" similar to what KCI started out with. We should have devoted Terminal B to arrivals and Security screenings, connected by "people movers" to C and A.

TOP PHOTO -- LOOKING GLASS

There's a blog in a midwestern town
Calling out the corruption that's sending it down
Lonely readers pass the time away
And talk about their Mahomes latest play
There's a girl in this former cowtown
And she works layin' whiskey down
They say, Brandy, fetch another round
She serves them whiskey and wine

'Til one day Quinton and Rex
Come into her bar and lay down a hex
It's now ten o'clock and you MUST close down!
Said the two bumbling fools, a couple of clowns
Brandy pleaded, You've destroyed my business and left me destitute.
Not to worry, the clowns squealed with delight
Join our team and become a prostitute!!!

lec Baldwin snapped.

The “30 Rock” star, 62, continued to defend wife Hilaria (neĆ© Hillary) Baldwin on Instagram Monday for faking her Spanish accent and heritage, eventually opting for a cryptic Mark Twain quote to summarize his feelings.

“A lie can travel half way around the world while the truth is putting on its shoes,” the quote read.

Alec’s followers didn’t agree with the sentiment, as his former-yoga-instructor wife seemingly had been putting on a Spanish facade when in reality she was born and raised in Boston by parents who were also born and raised in Boston.

“Like your wife being Spanish when she lived in Massachusetts her entire life,” one user wrote. “I take it her accent is fake as well? FRAUDS!”

After reading this attack, Alec replied, “Go f–k yourself.”
