Here's what will happen: big contracts will be given out (some already have) to "consultants" who are alligned with Rendell. The consultants will dream up a scheme that will assure contractors and businesspersons who are Rendell's friends/contributors get dibs on prime real estate, office space, etc. Meanwhile, Rendell's law firm buddies in Philly will get legal work out of this that will result in huge tax dollars going their way. Rendell will be long gone when the chickens come home to roost on this one. Or, perhaps, comfortably back with his law firm enjoying the tainted fruits of his labors.

Rendell and his people get away with so much unethical and downright illegal behavior that it is just shocking -- even to me.

I find your lack of trust in our governor to be surprising!

Just kidding....:) I agree that Fast Eddie will ram through something that will bring money to his friends, and the state (us) will somehow get screwed with the bill.

Maybe he could put a casino there or something.

Up in the Hazleton area, some "businessmen" (alias for government money grabbers) are proposing to build a cargo airport. If such a facility is needed, and I doubt that seriously, but if one is, Willow Grove is a ready built spot. Of course, so are 6 or 7 other former military bases in and around the New York hub.

Six comments thus far, and none rational. Just a bunch of rants by six "losers."

These forums are really stupid. Because no one actually does anything about anything. People just sit at their computer getting fat as#ier by the day. Talk is cheap. Goodbye.

Do some research. How could making the base a Home Land Security Hub be a bad thing. If your worried about contracts going to the Governors buddies, I suggest you learn about the bidding process. This is an opportunity to take care of our own. I hear it everyday...we spend all this money on foreign interests and none on taking care of our own country. Now's our chance. How nice will it be to have the recourses right here to take care of Local State and National emergencies. I bet you wont be complaining when your dialing 911 for help!!
