Thread Name: Suspect Item Shuts Down Jetport!
Subject: RE: Suspect Item Shuts Down Jetport!
Joe, (sigh of exasperation) look around you. What you don't see is air. Now look at your door. That is also a portal. So airportals are everywhere. Why would all those other places want to call themselves airports when air is everywhere around us and moves through whatever port is made available? It's a foolish name for a thing like that.
Now, what flies into and out of airports? Airplanes. And the commercial airplanes that pay the larger fees are jets. So Portland has a jetport. It's a much more accurate name and hardly pretentious at all.
See how simple it is?
