Our airport: Pros and cons

Pro: It's not a dehumanizing labyrinth.

Con: The number of cities served by nonstop flights from here is quite limited. (Though that's more a reflection of our modest population and remote geography than it is a valid criticism of the airport.)

Pro: Most of the employees.

Con: A few of the employees.

Pro: The parking meters. (Sure, they devour quarters. But it is a stunning convenience.)

Con: The way people here crowd up next to the baggage carrousels. (Though, again, is that really the fault of the airport? Maybe they could post signs that more sharply rebuke those afflicted with this moronic tendency.)

Pro: You don't really have to fight hellacious traffic on the way there, so you're not all stressed out before you even arrive at the airport.

Con: Some of us miss the polar bear.
