I understand that 149 air control towers at smaller airports are going to close. Why? To continue funding these kind of important projects. Ok, the grant was originally given in 2009 under one of Obama's first spending binges, but most of it hasn't been spent. Do we really think the ducks would really mind if we took that money back and spent it on something truly useful? In fact, they might appreciate Uncle Sam's respect of the privacy of their boudoirs!
