Fly Palmdale?

Back in the late 60s, we started buying land in Palmdale for an airport. To date, LAWA has not yet come up with real air service. I know the environmentalists, unions and Jimmy "Poopy" Hahn (that's what I called him when he was a kid and let one go in his pants during a County Supes meeting) won't consider a regional solution, but for Christ sakes how much more airport can we pile on that old beanfield?

The Daily News has a great article on the latest. I know some of you folks out there have some jim dandy information on the whole airport issue so I look forward to hearing your take.

Poop at Palmdale is it! Did you know that the land that the City of LA purchased for a "Palmdale Intercontinental Airport" is being used as a dumping ground for effulent (i.e. secondary treated sewage)???

The ground water has been contaminated by this dumping and the local water board is forcing a clean-up.

Hey Mayor Sam, didn't you dedicate a terminal out at Palmdale back in the early 1970's?

Indeed - way back then we knew how this city was going to grow - out and north. Damn we were right. We started buying that land during my term with the idea we'd have an airport in the future.

Isn't this the future, Poopy?

One of the great quotes from the LAX discussion at City Council.

Dennis Zine: "We have Palmdale. And I've never been to Palmdale Airport, wherever it is, I'm sure it's out there."

That's some good thinking Dennis.
