Mr. FW column on the mark about airplane noise

I am a Federal Way resident, living about a mile or maybe even a little bit less west of Marine Hills. I wanted to say thank you for your article in the Federal Way Mirror jeering the airport noise. I have to say I have been seeing a lot from these people who complain about it and am getting tired of it. They must obviously have no idea how many people the airport employs or how much revenue it puts into our economy, yet they do nothing but complain about it and try to make operations complicated for the Port of Seattle. I’m afraid they’re also wasting much of government time and resources in this business, having a city task force, and I’m sure even wasting tax revenue, or attempting to, on this. As if people’s “wins” against the port haven’t been good enough already, getting higher-quality sound-proof windows, etc., over the years. Thank you very much and bravo, as you said there’s far more important things to do.
