Eye On Boise

A December Monday at the Boise airport...

Things are looking pretty festive today at the Boise Airport, where I'm heading up to North Idaho for a week-long road show of open government seminars sponsored by IDOG, Idahoans for Openness in Government; I'll be in Sandpoint tonight, Coeur d'Alene tomorrow, Moscow Wednesday and Lewiston on Thursday.

Despite plenty of travelers, Boise's airport somehow lacks the sense of hustle and bustle of most airports; it's downright quiet, but for the corny Christmas music playing in the background. One reason: The big-screen TVs that used to play in the waiting areas are gone; an airport staffer said they were pulled out a couple of years ago. Instead, now there are screens here and there in the walkways that just silently show ads.

One thing very popular with travelers here: The free Wi-Fi, which works great.
