    Representative Bobby Scott (D VA) said with budget cuts coming up in January that there may be closures of the Newport News & Williamsburg (PHF)airport along with ROA (Roanoke). I'm sure the Daily Press (Newport News & Hampton) and VA Pilot (Norfolk, VA Beach, Portsmouth, Chesapeake) will offer more in depth coverage.

    Yeah. As much as I like being able to fly out of Roanoke (which is about a half hour from my house compared with Charlotte which is a shade over two hours), I feel dirty every time I do knowing that your tax dollars help subsidize my flight. Of course, I'm sure every small regional airport is the same way in that respect. So, perhaps I should be upset that I may no longer get to freeload but others still will...

    Having principles can be confusing sometimes...:confused2:
