This place SUX

Airports have three-letter codes. O'Hare in Chicago is ORD; Los Angeles International is LAX (I often wonder about those guys wearing "LAX Security" patches); Baltimore-Washington is BWI. Sioux City, Iowa is SUX, and you can imagine what they think of that.

Anyway, the FAA was asked back in March to change the code, and now has declined to do so. Airport officials in Sioux City may try again, but for now, they're stuck with what they have.

The reason given wasn't strong? Why can't the FAA see the problem here. That sux.

Maybe they're figuring that people flying in from Bora Bora or Pago Pago won't find it as amusing as would, say, someone from Walla Walla.

I dont' know why I'm laughing so hard at this, but I can't stop.
