The [Monday] Papers

"You might have heard this one before," Lee Provost writes for the Ottawa, Illinois Times.

"Believe it or not, the South Suburban Airport may be closer to becoming a reality that anyone thought.

"At least according to U.S. Rep. Robin Kelly, who's congressional district includes the proposed site as well as the Kankakee area."

I wish I could believe. I have been a longtime supporter of the South Suburban Airport, more typically known as Peotone.

Just to kind of bookend my reasoning, in 2002 I wrote in a Chicago magazine article about Richard M. Daley that if he "were less concerned with hoarding political power and more concerned about the broader needs of the region, the airport mess would have been solved already. In 1986, a state study determined that Chicago would need a third airport by 2000. How right that study turned out to be."

In 2014, I wrote for Crain's how building Peotone could actually save lives. I still believe that.
