Scott Groves has been sending me some interesting information. Apparently, a couple of months ago, they approved lotsa money for a new facelift. Of course, that sets off red flags…this is a fairly recent airport, why would it already need renovations? But voila…
DENVER – What does a nearly $1 billion makeover look like? Officials at Denver International Airport revealed their multi-million dollar plans for the south terminal on Thursday.
Okay, so they needed to renovate the recently built, hugely wasteful airport. Fine. Sooo…why are they reducing flights? Via 9 News:
While supporters believe the impending merger of United and Continental airlines will have little impact in Denver, a document revealed in an August hearing suggests a different scenario.
An internal Continental document presented in an ongoing case challenging the merger outlines a total cut of 37 departures at Denver International Airport -a drop of 19 percent – if the carriers combine.
I guess they didn’t prepare for this? All this money wasted on a damn airport?
“The initial cost of this New Beast was to be 1.7 billion dollars (with a “B”) but by the time they were done playing games, having problems, getting bailed out and got extra government money (and money from private corporations on top of that), it cost about $4.8 billion – obscenely over budget.”
Yeah, this makes sense.

Unusual Financing Plan Keeps Denver Airport Rail Link on Track
Many U.S. cities are struggling just to keep their existing infrastructure intact during these times of shaky finances. But some new projects can’t wait. In metro Denver, the start of an ambitious plan, long considered essential to the local economy and Front Range residents — commuter rail service from downtown to Denver International Airport — has finally broken ground.
For those of you who are not aware of the murals, here are a couple of lovely photos from this place of evil.
Oh, really? Anubis?
I am sorry, does this dead child in a coffin have a Star of David and a Bible? Hmm…curious.
Killing the dove of peace. Gotcha. Gas mask…gotcha. Burning buildings? Gotcha. These are lovely images to greet someone at an airport!
Dead animals and people. Gotcha. Guess they don’t care much for the inhabitants of this planet.
Horse with glowing eyes. Yeah, you can’t make it much more obvious, people. Apocalypse, anyone?
Anyhow, I am curious as to what is going on there. Theories? There are many. But they are giving the clues. 😉
