There was more than a bit of incomprehensibility when it was announced earlier this week that Logan Airport had checked in and transported by airplane more than 28 million people in 2011.
Think about it. More than 2.2 million people per month landed in East Boston and were transported through East Boston on their way to the city proper or to the suburbs in the Greater Boston area.
The case can reasonably be made that this neighborhood deserves a sit down with MassPort officials to discuss what more that agency can do for this neighborhood which is literally drowning in Logan Airport’s success.
Anti-gambling forces are worried about traffic due to a casino.
They ought to be terrified that Logan Airport will soon transport through this neighborhood 30 million people.
Let’s have that sit-down. It is necessary and it should be mandatory.
