OK....safety, security, and human decency. At least somebody has given some "reasons"...almost. #1 Why is the jail less safe now than when it was built? #2 Why is the jail less secure now than when it was built? #3 Why is the jail less humane now than when it was built? (I assume that's what he means when he says "human decency") Those are the questions that the voters need answered to support…

Precisely. This pig was on the scene for hours with the deceased as it laid in the streets. If was so seriously injured why wasn't he seen by the EMTs on the scene. I'll tell you why because this is some BS story concocted later when he realized the depths of the pot of s**t he put hisself in.

Those are actually the rules of the US State Department, so, yeah, that would apply to Ambassadors, too. I don't know what the President or SecState said on any calls. Do you? Just because they're not out making speeches about it in front of cameras doesn't mean they're not trying to work back-channel deals. But whether they are or not is moot. Expecting them too is foolish, because…

Cape Air drops fares as September passenger numbers fall

City, airline working to achieve 10,000 passenger to qualify for $1 million subsidy

A decline in passenger boardings at Quincy Regional Airport comes on the heels of a push from the City and Cape Air to still hit 10,000 enplanements this year.

September boardings were down to 775 from 823 in September 2011.

Jeff Steinkamp, interim airport director, said weather was a factor in the drop.

“Passenger Boardings took a moderate decline in September due to several reasons, including the prudent cancelation of seven flights during the past month mostly because of severe weather flying conditions,” Steinkamp said.  “These unsafe conditions were not so much experienced in the Quincy area but mostly in the surrounding St. Louis (Lambert International) Airport vicinity.”

Steinkamp said QRA is still running 8.5% ahead of 2011’s year-to-date boardings at 7,235 passengers and that number is 31% ahead of 2010’s mark.

Andrew Bonney of Cape Air says the price is being reduced on selected St. Louis flights to $39 to help them get to 10,000 so the City can qualify for $1 million of Federal Grant money that can be used for Capital Infrastructure and Safety Improvement Projects.

“This discount fare is our way of saying thanks to the Quincy community for its support as we continue to work for 10,000 enplanements in 2012,” Bonney said.

Steinkamp added that Quincy Mayor John Spring has been working on an incentive with Cape Air in an effort to increase the chances of hitting the 10,000 passenger mark.
