Two Birds with One Stone

Man, it just doesn't get any better than this---if Salem sticks to its guns and refuses to allow a for-profit helicopter school to make life miserable for the airport neighbors, we also stand to win out over the insane desire to throw away millions of dollars in a futile attempt to turn a small, close in, airport into a destination for scheduled airliners.

This is like being told that, if you refuse to allow a motorcycle gang to rev their Harleys outside your window all day and night, you can also save a bundle on your taxes.

Was there ever a way to kill two uglier birds with one well-aimed stone?
