Airport VIPs

We've been down this road before. But it's July 4. What better day for Stephens Media to do a feature on an affront to democracy -- the new get-rich scheme by Stephen Brill in which airports, including the Little Rock National Airport, are selling the right to preferential treatment by government employees (airport security workers) for a fee.

A Little Rock airport spokesman says she's heard no complaints. Well hear one now. As a NY Times article noted:

"Whether richer fliers should be allowed to cut in line at checkpoints is one of a family of problems that crop up when public spaces and private interests intersect. What looks to one person like flexibility looks to another like bribing your way through the system."
