If the worst thing happening to Middle Eastern people is that Carlos Mencia is doing a joke about them being stopped at airports, that’s a pretty awesome state of affairs.
Our community in North Texas is fortunate to have two thriving airports. We serve millions of satisfied customers and employ hundreds of thousands of North Texans. We should not jeopardize that which is working well already.

Outside of white button-down oord cloth shirts, Trickers brogues, 501s, and Ray-Ban Aviators, the single item of clothing that I have had in my closet consistently since 1982 is a pair of black-and-white checked Vans. They are the lazy man’s shoe – perfect for dog walking and security lines at the airport.
When we were scared about 9/11, we federalized the airport security, we spent millions for body armor for dogs in Ohio. All that over-reaction comes from fear and government – bad combination.
I don’t need the water to be inspired. My stories inspire me, not the location of where I’m parked. And good thing, since I’ve had to finish books in airports, in the RV we used to have, the lake house, while on vacation, at home, in the kitchen when my office PC was on the fritz.
There’s no point being at the airport longer than needed.
Back in the early ’70s, there were two airlines that flew puddle jumpers from the Sarasota-Bradenton airport to Atlanta: National and Eastern, neither of which exists today.

I don’t really like long flights any more – I find them too tiring. Flying always involves the same things these days – huge crowds at airports, waiting around, late take-offs, weather problems, and so on. I don’t really enjoy travelling. I don’t imagine anyone does except young children.
We used to have our own plane with the band’s name on the side. It was a dream come true. You drive to a local airport. There’s none of this checking in stuff; you just get on the plane.

Everything I do, I go to black people. If I have a problem at the airport, I’ll go to the black ticket agent. I hope they notice me because I’ll get better service. If I’m at a restaurant, I look for the black waiter. Rent-a-Car, give you the upgrade.
The Oslo airport used to be a kilometer away from where I grew up. They moved it outside Oslo the year I was born, but they kept the runway there as a historic site.

Hollywood, the business, would be just fine if someone were to destroy the Hollywood sign. The city’s there is the airport – its point of entry and exit, and in some ways its identity.

The two things I hear wherever I go, literally walking down the street, through airports, or in restaurants – it is either ‘You raised me,’ or ‘Fellow Canadian.’ Not even a paraphrase – those are the exact remarks.
I cannot always write at the same time, in the same place. I work, travel and have a vigorous family life. If I’m stranded in an airport lobby – I write. If I have to wait in a doctor’s office – I write. If I have a morning or evening to myself – I write.
It’s funny, when I’m in airports and I’m walking around, maybe feeling a little tired in my sweatpants and not wanting to talk to folks, I just put on my sunglasses. And usually it works every time.

Taking a shuttle or even paying for a taxi to a rental office that’s a few miles away from the airport can mean a lower rate – 50 percent lower is common – for the same car, from the same company, for the same length of time. Many companies run free shuttles from some of the major airports.

I’m constitutionally incapable of working on planes or trains, and airports are definitely out.

I definitely rediscovered reading for pleasure by devoting such a large swath of my time to sitting on airplanes. I am now painfully adept at removing my shoes so as to have the least amount of foot surface area touching an airport floor.

I have to say, running in flip-flops through the airport can be pretty tricky.

I’m pleased to announce that my government will build the much-needed Melbourne airport rail link.
Divestitures have long been the preferred remedy for horizontal mergers, where there’s an overlap between the two companies.

Donald Trump wouldn’t work on paper. Obnoxious, crass, boastful, and vulgar, with garish tastes and a Stepford wife – as a fictional character, he’d seem too crudely drawn. Even in a trashy airport thriller, readers wouldn’t buy such a boor as president.
I associate going to an airport with work because I travel so much with my job. So when I have a few days free from work, I tend to stay at home.
Anticipating that most poetry will be worse than carrying heavy luggage through O’Hare Airport, the public, to its loss, reads very little of it.

In April of 1976, Epic Records was flying out to sign us when I tripped over a light case after a gig and broke my arm.

I hate everything about airports from getting there to taking off.
When I was 5 and my sister was 3, we went on a family trip, and she ate cheese off the floor at an airport. My mother, a germaphobe, got very upset. My sister, of course, got a stomach virus, and ever since then, I have an aversion to cheese.
I wrapped a movie called ‘Zombieland,’ in which I was constantly under assault by zombies, then flew to New York, still very much in character. With my daughter at the airport I was startled by a paparazzo, who I quite understandably mistook for a zombie.
My parents were still living with my grandparents, on my dad’s side, when I was born, but when I was three, we moved to our own house near Luton airport. It was a typical street where the kids all played outside.
I can’t walk through the airport without grandmothers and daughters and little kids saying, ‘I watch you on Celebrity Apprentice.’ That’s a good feeling.

I always keep a plane on the pole at the airport.
The growth of Stewart Airport creates new jobs for area residents, brings new business and new travelers to the region, and brings new convenient travel options to those of us living in the Hudson Valley.

I feel that I have an impractical and deleterious snobbery about the relation of literature to the market. I thought, ‘I’ve become the kind of crap you buy at airports!’ It was exciting, but it was not a fantasy I’d ever had.
When you’re walking at the airport, you’re expected to smile at people because they know you… I find that tough. I’m only trying to protect myself. So I don’t take my eyes off the floor. People can take that as attitude. But it’s actually shyness. Yes, it is a bad habit. But it’s a defense mechanism.
Strangely enough, my favorite airport is Logan Airport in Boston – but largely for sentimental reasons. My first real summer job was working as a journeyman for the airport’s resident maintenance crew – a small army of union electricians, plumbers, and carpenters.
A lot of people think I’m a chick. It happens the most at airports. The flight attendants will always say, ‘Have a nice flight, Ms. Borns.’ It must be the hair.
I can tell you, I was in Seoul, Korea, and I had people come up to me in the airport and say ‘Congratulations on your induction into the WWE Hall of Fame.’ Of course, I can go to Garden City, Kan., and get the same kind of reception. It truly is an honor.

When I was younger I would go to the airport with my friends and drive out 2 A.M., 3 A.M. in the morning and just hang out until sunrise watching planes fly in and fly out.

I’ve been chased through airports with a screaming baby because the photographers are ruthless, and they want the picture.
When checking in at an airport, no matter how rude the check-in person is to you, always smile and be nice because you don’t know what kind of day they’ve had. You are going on holiday and they’re stuck wherever they are. Be nice to them because they can re-route your baggage to wherever they feel like.
From the time I was a little itty-bitty kid, I was going to the airport every day. I began to study all the airplanes, and I’d draw all the airplanes.
When I was a very little boy, I lived underneath the air pattern of LaGuardia airport in New York and I watched the planes fly to their destinations. I was in love with the design of these airplanes.
I have to put my father over because he really taught me a lot, especially when it comes to out-of-the-ring psychology and how to react when you’re approached by fans after a show or in the airport. It might sound silly, but a lot of those things come into play when you’re playing a character.
I’m not the biggest fan of airports. I try to arrive a few minutes before check-in closes.
Other countries, such as Israel, successfully employ behavior detection techniques at their airports, but the bloated, ineffective bureaucracy of TSA has produced another security failure for U.S. transportation systems.
William Regal once told us he people-watched when he was in the ring. He would see things that people would do. And if they annoyed him, chances are they would annoy someone else. A lot of times I’ll just people watch when I’m traveling or at the airport or living everyday life.
Not everything in old age is grim. I haven’t walked through an airport for years, and wheelchairs are the way to travel.

After Richmond, we went to Dover and tested that week at Kentucky. I was going to Dover and we had to get the trainer to meet us at the airport. I had to do some therapy on my ribs they hurt so bad.
‘Company’ has become a cult film. When people see me at the airport, and when I travel, they call me ‘Companywala.’

Most of the time, I am quite familiar with the airports from which and to which I am traveling, and I know what I can eat there. If there is any doubt, I make sure I have something in my bag. A must-have for me is pre-measured protein powder in small Ziploc bags along with a shaker cup.
What would happen in the U.S. to terrorists who are not citizens? In less than 24 hours, they would be rounded up, taken to the airport and expelled.

I always like to arrive at the airport early to enjoy breakfast and lounge about so that when I get on the plane all my travel fever has disappeared.
I’m a terrible procrastinator. When we go to the airport, if they’re not literally closing the door behind my sweaty, hyperventilating body, I feel I’ve been there too long.

I don’t do much driving – about 5,000-6,000 miles a year. And most of that is to the airport and to the racing circuits.
Just getting from the airport straight to the gym is gonna be your best bet to knock off that rust and wake yourself up and get that blood flowing. You sit in a car or a plane cramped up, you lose a lot of blood flow and get that swelling in your legs. There are all kinds of dangers in sitting still too long.

In the U.S., the term ‘general aviation’ means its exact opposite, the way ‘public school’ does in England. An English public school is private and, on top of that, exclusive. Likewise, general-aviation airports in the U.S. are for everyone but the general public.
I can’t remember a time when I stepped into an airport or train station without wishing I were somewhere else, doing almost anything else. Just thinking about traveling gives me the willies. Traveling and dyslexia don’t really get along.
For families flying out of the U.K. for a winter getaway, airports should be the ideal place to pick up a bargain.

Whenever I am at the airport, I always manage to get a hug from the security personnel present at the security check. They always tell me that they love the songs from ‘Border,’ and its amazing that even 20 years later, the songs continue to hold the same meaning and impact they had when the film was released.
The bravest thing I’ve ever done is fly to New York. I’m simply terrified of aeroplanes – I am the woman you see weeping at the airport.

Well, I took a sabbatical. I walked away from shooting movies because I couldn’t handle the travel. I’m a single parent. I had young kids, and I found that keeping in touch with them from hotel rooms and airports wasn’t working for me. So I stopped.
The most romantic thing someone did was surprise me at the airport, after being away for 3 months in Los Angeles. You always see people with signs, and you’re like, ‘Isn’t that lovely?’ and then you see your own name on one – that isn’t a taxi driver’s! I was very impressed.
I think my level of fame will drop back down. I think it’ll recede. In fact, I know it will. That’s life on Planet Earth. And I’m okay with that. Besides getting tables at restaurants and special treatment at the airport, what else is there?
Running through airports with pounds of luggage – that’s a good workout.
It’s absolutely essential that Melbourne, and Victoria, has a rail link to the airport.
You go to the airport and look at the bookstand, and you feel the titles are similar, the covers are similar, and you wonder how they can be different.
If it hadn’t been for record people like Ralph Peer, the Chess brothers, and Alan Lomax, then life would’ve been unbelievably dull, and I would’ve been sacking groceries somewhere and probably, at this point, running a little 7-Eleven down by the airport.
When I was 18, I was working at Luton airport and spending all my money on going out and buying tops. I had no fears, no responsibilities.
OK, so I never had a transfer in my career, but I used to love deadline day: Dimitar Berbatov turning up at Manchester airport with hours to go, Robinho coming to Manchester City instead of Chelsea.
In fact, I get angry when people laugh at me. I go to the airport and the ground hostess starts laughing at me when she sees me. I get irritated and ask them if I just did some comedy for them to laugh like that. But then I apologise because I know they must have remembered some movie scene that I did.
With Stewart International Airport located here, the New Windsor Police Department has an added responsibility to take anti-terrorism precautions while protecting our area.
We fly to the town in the little private airplane, and then we have to get in cars and drive to the hotel and then drive to the gig. So, I want to do a tour where the performances will actually be at the small airports.
Being stuck in airports, you always end up buying perfume and sunglasses.
I think Muslims have become the new Negroes in America. They are being mistreated at airports, by the Immigration – everywhere. Islam is a religion of peace. They are wrong.
When I walk through an airport and people go, ‘You’re not fat!’ I’m like, ‘Thanks. That’s great. Good to know I’m not fat today! Thank you!’
When you go for business, you just see the airport, the offices, cities. You never see what 80 per cent of the population does in a country, so if you want to understand what Indonesia is made of, or the depths of China or India, you have to go and see.
I buy so much when I go through airports: I buy psychology magazines; I buy ‘Mind,’ another magazine, ‘New Scientist,’ ‘Scientific America.’

I am proud that everybody is knowing me on the streets and airplanes and airports.
You can find Chobani in every major supermarket, in club stores, convenience stores and airports. But we’re not everywhere yet. We have been struggling with keeping up with demand.
I remember I’d be sleeping in the airport at 5 o’clock in the morning, traveling three hours, and playing a game that day. We never even chartered until my third year in the NBA.
During the week that I arrived in the United States, I saw an airport, used a telephone, used a library, talked with a scientist, and was shown a computer for the first time in my life.
I often find there’s an equal benefit to being in a comfortable, well rested studio session, but also the more pressured headspace of being in an airport or working at 7 A.M., fresh from the club with the music still ringing in your ears.
If we didn’t have a sustainable agriculture industry, who would be paying the then-missing taxes to support our defence, police, roads, airports, elderly, parks, public sporting facilities and much more?
I like to say that I am based in Los Angeles, but I mostly reside in airports.
Any society that could come here could pick up the lights from New York. What should we do about that? Should we darken New York from now until the last human expires? Would we want to turn off all the radars at JFK airport?
With me, traveling for work is arriving at the airport, checking into the hotel, leaving the hotel the next morning at 4 or 5 to do something like ‘The Jimmy and Jackie Captain Crazy Morning Zoo,’ doing a bunch of those in a row, then going back to the hotel, and then finally going to the club.
Yes, women should be free to cover their faces when walking down the street. But in our schools, hospitals, airports, banks and civil institutions, it is not unreasonable – nor contrary to the teachings of Islam – to expect women to show the one thing that allows the rest of us to identify them… namely, their face.
I love steakhouses. When I’m in Chicago, I know there’s a Gibsons that’s open late. 13 Coins at Sea-Tac Airport in Washington is a gourmet restaurant I love.
I despise places where you have to have an assigned seat. Makes me feel like I’m at the airport.
I will admit that I purposely stress myself out. But I think I like stressing myself out. There’s a glamour to, like, ‘I’ve got to get to the airport!’ I just like the caricature.
I find airports to be purgatorial in many ways. I mean, even from the basics of the design: you know, this sort of – this muted gray and the fluorescent lights.
I look suspicious if I dress in sort of benign clothes, going to the airport.
My first girlfriend broke up with me on a yellow legal pad. After she picked me up from the airport one day, she took out a letter that her therapist wrote, and she read it to me. She and her therapists wrote a letter breaking up with me together.
I seethe at the humiliation of airport security checks.
When I’m drawing, I only do that at home, really, at my drawing table. But writing I could do in other places. So I’ve written in airports, in hotels, different places.
I still don’t understand why we need a gigantic airport sprawled across South East England. What does it gain us, compared with the misery of noise, pollution and congestion it causes in our cramped country? Would it really be so bad if we had to take a train to Paris or Amsterdam to fly to the U.S.A.?
I get recognized at the airport and at the malls in Colorado.
The best compliment that has ever been given to me was, I was at the airport one day and a guy came in and said, ‘Lionel, my wife loves you, the kids love you, my mother-in-law loves you, the family loves you.’
If there were a major earthquake in Los Angeles, with bridges and highways and railroads and airports all shut down and huge buildings collapsing, I don’t care how much planning you do, the first 72 hours is going to be chaotic.
It is key that Kansas Citians make the call as to what kind of airport they want.
I’ve done stand-up at airport Holiday Inns and that’s where you feel like you’re doing comedy for people that hate it.
Egyptian drumming happens to be a favorite of mine. It’s a really simple instrument, but it’s really difficult to play. You can take it anywhere with you – you can play it in your room, in an airport. It’s very quiet, so you explore the quiet side.
In China, when you get to the airport everyone be talking in American slang.
My first heartbreak was extreme. I went to Australia for 10 months when I was at school and told the girl I was madly in love with not to come out to see me – and of course, when I came back, she met me at the airport to tell me she’d met someone else.
I like to go to the airport looking stylish – you never know who you’ll run into. Sometimes I have fans at the airports. I never want to be bummy looking.
I don’t miss going to airports and hanging out in hotel rooms.
Like a lot of people, I pray for a sick relative or that kind of thing, but I don’t pray to make my next flight connection at the airport. I find prayers before sports contests to be insensitive and kind of demeaning, at least when someone prays to beat the other team or something like that.
I’ve written everywhere – in hotel rooms, cafes, airports, and planes all around the world. Now I have a home office, and the wi-fi is really bad down there, which is great. If I make a date with myself to write from, say, 6 A.M. to 10 A.M. on a Saturday, the fact that no emails come in helps me focus.
The trouble is that after nine years as a Jack of all trades and Master of the Dominican Order, I have no expertise on anything except airports and exotic foods.
Our roads, bridges, airports, railways, and river ports are our outlets to expand Missouri business, generate future growth, and expand to new emerging markets across the globe.
But for every hour and a half on stage, you have a five hour long bus ride, waiting for five hours at the airport, five hours of interviews… I know, it’s part of the job, but that doesn’t imply I have to like it.
If you go to a coffee shop or at the airport, and you’re using open wireless, I would use a VPN service that you could subscribe for 10 bucks a month. Everything is encrypted in an encryption tunnel, so a hacker cannot tamper with your connection.
Every job has its downside. For example, being in a band; the travel part of it – getting picked up from your house in a car, going to the airport, getting on a plane, going from the airplane to a van, then going from the van to a hotel.
In the countries where they don’t know me, which is only America, wherever I go, the hotel, the restaurant, the airport, people go, ‘Oh, my! What’s that?’ That’s good. That’s good, because there is a curiosity there, which is great.
I go through airports and people see the white hair and they said, ‘Hey, the horse guy! Aren’t you the horse guy?’ Or I get, ‘Has anybody told you that you look just like Bob Baffert?’ I say, ‘He must be a good-looking guy.’
Wherever I can get a fast track, I’ll try to because I can’t stand the airport experience. If you can afford priority boarding, then do it. Nobody wants an unpleasant experience before it starts.
Don’t get me wrong – our fanbase is super passionate, and I love them, but there’s a difference between stalking me at the airport and just happening to see me.
I don’t have any writing routine. Sometimes I go to my local coffee shop and I write there for some hours. Apart from that, I am traveling most of the time. I write in airports, trains, hotel rooms… I can write anywhere.
We butchered the force present at the airport, we are destroying them.
I like to camp and to not have to check in to airports and hotels and I love to just drive, man.
People elect me to make sure the chief of police is the right chief of police. They elect me to make sure I have the right person running the airport.
I’ve never missed a flight. And I don’t see any reason in cutting it close because airports are pleasurable for me: You can go to the restaurant, get a massage, browse books, sit at a bar, check emails.
I always think it’s kind of fun to get to the airport early, check in, and then go and have a meal before getting on the plane.
I had relatives who would go to Japan and bring back random stuff they bought at the airport or whatever – ‘Ultraman’ and ‘Speed Racer,’ stuff like that.
I eat bags and bags of cashews. I’ve got them in the kitchen, and about ten feet away I’ve got another bowl on the kitchen table. In my backpack, I’ve always got a bag of cashews. I started eating them in the airports because that’s the one food that you can find in every airport that’s actually nutritious.
I like being comfortable at airports, in flip-flops with no jewelry on.
My one guilty pleasure is, every airport, I will drop everything to get an airport massage at those kiosks.
I hear it all the time. Walking through an airport or something like that, I still get a random, ‘Hey, I’m a Bills fan. Appreciate ya!’ Stuff like that.
Refugees tend to avoid planes, airports and fake passports, even though flying may appear to be the most obvious way to flee. For one thing, security procedures at airports are far stricter than at land borders.
I don’t like getting patted down and taking off my shoes at the airport.
Some girls love to go to the airport and have 50 paparazzi on them. I go to the airport and have a mental breakdown.
Did you know that Christmas Day is absolutely the best day to fly? It is. No crowded airports and crowded planes. I always flew to Australia. That’s what Christmas was for me – a plane journey to the next tournament.
What don’t I miss about tennis? Oh man, the road, the airports, the rain delays, the scheduling, the knots in your stomach, not being able to eat. Things like that.
Astana is a government city, not a tourist city, but all you do is tour it. You tour it in the cab from the airport, passing the gleaming new English-language Nazarbayev University and then the new soccer stadium, speed-skating track, and ten-thousand-seat velodrome.
I live in New York City. I’m 5-foot-9 and wear Rockport shoes that make me 5-foot-91/2. They’re not lifts – I deny that – but they do set off the airport metal detector. My hair is starting to gray a little. I have a gold tooth in the back.
I loathe the very thought of airports and also airlines taking as much from you as possible and giving very little back.
After Lockerbie, everyone thought, now we’ve learned the lesson of how to be proactive instead of being reactive. Unfortunately, September 11 came and we know the result. Thousands of people lost their lives. Security totally failed, not at one airport, at three different airports around the country.
Try to know where the best ice cream is in any given airport terminal.
Every time I drive into Rio from the airport, I see the city for the first time and think how strange it is.
Industrialisation is necessary. But acquisition is by no means the only avenue through which it can be achieved. The Cochin Airport is a prime example of this. Instead of choosing to acquire the land, the State asked the private parties to negotiate with the landowners directly. The State merely acted as an arbitrator.
I find solace in animals. I have got a stray dog at home called Candy. I picked it up while I was waiting at the airport one day. I always wanted to have a ‘macho’ dog but got this sweet little thing instead.
I had a big group of harpists from Japan in October of 1973 ready to tour the country and the Yom Kippur War took us all by surprise. There were no concerts, no shows – there was no way for them to even leave because the airport was closed. I had to return the money. I had paid them in advance.
You’ll never see me in an airport without a DDP YOGA shirt. It says, ‘It Ain’t Your Mama’s Yoga’ on the back and ‘DDP YOGA’ in the front. Every time I walk around, people see the shirt, and it makes them smile.
I didn’t want to use my father’s name. I don’t think I will ever want to use his influence… Never have I gone around asking people, ‘Do you know who I am…’ Even if it’s to cut a line at the airport.
Wherever I go, I’m watching. Even on vacation, when I’m in an airport or a railroad station, I look around, snap pictures, and find out how people do things.
Labour needs to end its support for expensive nuclear power and vanity projects like HS2, and take a firm stance against the ecologically impossible expansion of airports.
The airport paparazzi kind of wigs me out a little bit.
I always get stopped by security and immigration, telling me, ‘Tell me who the terrorist is, or we won’t stamp your passport!’ The last time that somebody did that to me – at LAX, actually – I was like, ‘Hey, don’t ever ask a brown girl that in an American airport!’
I landed in 1980 in Bangkok, and I stopped to eat ten times between the airport and the hotel. It was all lemongrass and ginger and chilies.
I’ve gone on Twitter, and I’ve seen a picture of me walking through the airport, or some random picture, and the person’s like, ‘Oh my God. I just saw Chilli.’ They just take a picture, and it lets people know where you are. It’s just crazy to me even when people do that.
Of the paperbacks that you see at the airport, I am the most violent woman writer.
When I see the crumbling roads and bridges, or the dilapidated airports, or the factories moving overseas to Mexico, or to other countries, I know these problems can all be fixed, but not by Hillary Clinton – only by me.
Kansas City is one of the most convenient airports in the nation.
Search for the truth. I tell you things and I always ask you to verify what I say. I told you yesterday that there was an attack and a retreat at Saddam’s airport.
Airport expansion is just one example of how our planet is being plundered for profit.
If only we could get Muslims to boycott all airlines, we could dispense with airport security altogether.
Women inspire me. Women in the airports, around the country in different cities, destinations around the world, inspire me with the way they express their individuality. I love watching women and discovering all the ways each person uses a color, pattern, a style, even a lipstick color. I’m a people watcher.
Every bit of money that we can bring from our federal transportation budget in Washington back here to Stewart Airport will benefit our local economy and our local residents.
You know what I’ve always wanted to do? I’ve always wanted to put a lung in a suitcase and send it through an airport security check. In effect, the guard would be looking at an X-ray of a lung.
I drive quite a bit. I always drive myself to the airport prior to a race.
We must, from the highest office in the land right down to the shoeshine boy in the airport, have a return to biblical basics.
You come to Washington, there’s a rail bill, there’s a highway bill, there’s a aviation bill. But when you go home, there’s an airport, there’s a highway, there’s a rail, there’s transit. It all has to work together.
The combination of funding for our ports, airports, and highways is a really significant investment in our infrastructure.
LaGuardia Airport is tiny compared to its sleek modern counterparts, like Atlanta or Denver with their endless parallel runways spread over thousands of acres.
The episode of the ‘shoe bomber,’ Richard Reid, has suddenly meant more feet being bared at airports than at the average Hindu temple. My solution has been to replace my customary lace-up Oxfords with a pair of slip-on loafers when I fly. Generals are always fighting the last war, and security screeners are the same.
Whenever I get in a car and I’m going to or from the airport or the train station, I put on a TED Talk using the TED app. It makes the trip go by super fast, and it fills my sails.
When I go through the airport and see white women walking through the airport barefooted, like athlete’s feet don’t exist, there’s something wrong.
As mayor, I’ve traveled to China, Japan, South Korea, Vietnam, and Mexico to meet with heads of state and business leaders to promote trade with L.A. companies and through L.A.’s seaports and airports – because that generates L.A. jobs.
I have only ever been to Antigua to hop over to other Caribbean islands. The airport had always seemed perfectly lovely, but I’m a quiet sort of holiday girl, and Antigua always seemed big.
We were also able to do a great deal of work to improve highways, airports and airways, waterways, and railways, all of which are important and have provided a better quality of life and economic development opportunities for my constituents.
My desire to curtail undue freedom of speech extends only to such public areas as restaurants, airports, streets, hotel lobbies, parks, and department stores. Verbal exchanges between consenting adults in private are as of little interest to me as they probably are to them.
We should advocate that the North should stay in the customs union and the single market and that any customs checks should be in the ports and airports, not on land borders.
We were in New York, and we were performing at a morning show. This fan literally ran from that studio in the middle of New York City to our airport, which was very far away. That fan ran all the way there to see us, and we were so in awe of that guy.
I want to be a Bond girl. Think about it – I have metal components in my legs, so when I go through airport security, I set off the alarms. But when they realize why I’m beeping, they let me through. What if I had weapons in my legs? I could take one off and pull out an Uzi! Legs Galore – that would be me!
Just got back from a pleasure trip: I took my mother-in-law to the airport.
Airports in major cities, like LAX, are trippy environments. It is at once a national and international gathering of those in transition: The euphoric, emerging from planes, their journey at an end, and the determined, about to depart.
I photographed with film for many years; now that I work in digital, the difference is enormous. The quality is unbelievable: I don’t use flash, and with digital I can even work in very bad light. Also, it’s a relief not to lose photographs to x-ray machines in airports.
