Flight of Fancy

Just as calling this place Tech Valley doesn't necessarily make it so, putting "International" between the words Albany and Airport hasn't brought direct flights to London. Actually, I'm not sure it's brought direct flights to anywhere. The extravagantly named airfield was mentioned by Andy Rooney on 60 Minutes last night:
In Albany, New York, the airport is called the Albany International Airport. I think it has two flights a week to Canada. I grew up in Albany. Maybe I'll offer them $1.50 to rename it the Andrew A. Rooney Not Far Afield.
I hope Mr. Rooney knows he'll have to fight Joe Bruno for that ----and Bruno will bring a lot more (of your) money to the table.
