The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey is to
be commended for having the foresight to reuse the
former Stewart Air Force Base for civilian aviation in
order to relieve overcrowding at JFK and Laguardia
airports.

That is a lot more that can be said for some areas of
California such as Irvine and Novato. Those avaricious
cities have replaced perfectly good airbases with
cookie cutter homes, and strip malls in order to
enrich their own coffers. This comes at the expense of
the nation's taxpayers who paid for those aviation
assets in the first place.

The end result for the rest of us is more airport
overcrowding, higher fares, and delays. Irvine and
Novato should both be required to finance the entire
cost of a replacement airport. After all they got
plenty of extra money from those air bases that they hijacked from the American public.
