Star Trek buffs are familiar with the Vulcan edict that “good of the many outweighs the good of the one”. That principle is valid not only on Vulcan but as a cornerstone of any civil society . . . in theory. But this is corporate America where the “good of the one outweighs the good of the many” anytime there is a chance that money can be made.
This map of the proposed Central Texas Airport’s flight patterns accompanied Cyndi Wright’s June 6 article “Developer misses deadline” in the print edition of the Bastrop Advertiser. It brings home just how many people are going to be impacted by the CTA should it ever be built. How could the county have even considered this? Oh yes . . . the illusory pot of gold at the end of the runway.
Gaze long and hard at it folks . . . through your tears.
