The Red River Shoot-out

In response to the Senate bill that would end commercial flights at Dallas' Love Field (see my previous post), a House Representative from Texas has introduced a bill to stop commercial flights at Tulsa's airport . The Representative, Jeb Hensarling (the linked article claims that he's a state Senator, but when I googled him to find a link to his webpage and it turns out that he's a US representative for a district around Dallas), admits that its a joke. While it is a welcome change to see an elected official with a sense of humor, it would be nice to see more elected officials speaking about against unnecessary interference into the aviation industry, even when such interference benefits them or their constituents.
