Ted Stevens would make a fine greeter at Wal-Mart to pick up a few extra bucks.
He could also smell the customer's farts as they walk through.

Here's a serious suggestion: rename it after Secretary of State William H. Seward, who was the man behind the Alaska Purchase.

Seward is a great idea. Look how much he has added, over time-AK, the oil, etc. It would be a great idea to honor an American of his caliber and foresight.

Exactly. Seward believed in Alaska back when almost everybody thought he was crazy!(His contemporaries popularly called the Alaska Purchase "Seward's Folly".)

I think it shouldn't be changed! Whoever thinks it should is a bad person.

Les Gara! Why do we see your self serving face everywhere you go to stir trouble against any Republican? You and Hollis are anything but honorable public servants! At least Senator Ted Stevens has served the needs of ALL ALASKANS, rich or poor, native and anglo, village and city, everyone that contacts him. I do not always agree with him but stand to remind that he kept Alaska safety foremost and prevented military installations from closures during 4 decades! Ted did not receive a fair trial, it was a sham manufactoring evidence against him. Shame on you for not following the law he was on appeal and is innocent! Leave the airport alone. He deserves the name and we need to spend our money on important issues not petty name changing. Go to Hollywood to change names on the stars on the sidewalk!
