Bad Photography Monday: AVP

I had to blow through Wilkes-Barre/Scranton International Airport for a story a couple weeks ago.  It's a magnificent building-- bright, airy, big, and functional.

Still, the whole project left a bad taste in my mouth.  The chamber of commerce types told us the airport would attract new business to the area.  I'm still waiting for that.  Businesses don't choose a location because of the airport.  They look for cheap land, cheap utilities, and even cheaper labor.  Period.

They can't even find someone to take over the restaurant a stone's throw from the new terminal.

We have the best looking airport that no one uses.
