John Wayne: Another Reason Airports Should Not Be Named After People

After being named after John Wayne since Wednesday, June 20, 1979 — or slightly greater than 41 years — the international airport which serves Santa Ana and Orange County in California may undergo yet another name change because of some controversial comments which have been attributed to the actor in an interview with Playboy Magazine from back in May of 1971.

“Most people familiar with the life story of John Wayne are aware that the late movie star was a dyed-in-the-wool right-winger — after all, he was still making a movie glorifying America’s conduct of the Vietnam War (“The Green Berets,” 1968) well after the country had begun to get sick of the conflict”, according to…

Updated Security Procedures Announced From Transportation Security Administration May 2020

Five changes to the process and procedures pertaining to security across the United States were announced from the Transportation Security Administration through this official press release earlier today, Thursday, May 21, 2020 as a result of the current 2019 Novel Coronavirus pandemic — and those changes are expected to be completely implemented at the security checkpoints of all airports throughout the country by the middle of June of 2020.

The main purpose of the aforementioned changes is to limit physical contact while simultaneously increasing physical distance between people as much as possible in order to reduce the potential for cross-contamination at the security checkpoints of airports as part of an overall effort to help mitigate the spread of the 2019 Novel Coronavirus — and the implementation of these changes is already underway, as the Transportation Security Administration has reported experiencing a steady growth of travelers coming through airport checkpoints within the month of May of 2020.

As a result of the five changes to the process and procedures being implemented at security checkpoints at airports throughout the United States, you should expect to…
