Putting the cart before the jet fuel
The addition of flights at John Glenn Columbus International Airport has given a quick boost to area development efforts, say leaders who work to attract business to central Ohio.
This reminds me of LAGuy's comments on "best cities to live in" surveys. What makes them a best city? Low housing costs. Why are housing costs low? No one wants to live there.
Or maybe Glenn Reynolds' distinction between markers and traits. Somebody's poor? Give them a subsidized loan they can't afford and they won't be poor any longer. What's that? They're still poor? Even poorer? Well, it's the damned Republicans in Congress. Let's talk single payer, and give me a flight to San Franciso, willya? Columbus is World Class, because I can fly out of here any ol' damn time I want.
