Look what KSAT-12 is reporting now:
Huh. Well, any new airport that may get built will need city approval somewhere along the way. So, what does the psychic say about the city's role?
San Antonio is seeing it’s [sic] share of tough economic times this summer. AT&T is moving it’s [sic again] headquarters to Dallas. The highly touted savior of the southside, Toyota, will shuttle [I think they mean "shutter". --ed.] production until late fall. And two airlines have said goodbye to the San Antonio International Airport.
The changes, along with rising gas and grocery prices, has [sic] many worried, and wondering, when will things turn around?
It’s a question we posed to psychic Sean Harribance, who quickly zeroed in on issues surrounding the airport.
“I was meditating last night on the future and I saw a second airport here .. for cargo and international trips”, says Harribance, who sees San Antonio’s future dependent on moving people and cargo. He sees our current airport as problematic for the city, with it’s [sic!] limited size and ability to service international flights quickly. He predicts we will have a second airport, located 30 to 45 minutes away from where the airport is now.
Our mayor and city council all get the thumbs up from Harribance, who says “Most politicians do deals and contracts and they cheat .. I would say we have an honest city council and mayor”.
OK, now I know he's not really a psychic. That trusting view of our current city council is a dead giveaway. That, and his vision of the future:
Still, San Antonio will see crime increase this fall, and the city raising taxes next year and in 2010. Outside the city limits, he sees large tanks used for storage, possibly water storage [possibly not; it's hard to tell --ed.]. And in 10 years or so, “all of downtown is going to have casinos and slot machines”, Harribance tells us.
There you go. San Antonio as the next Vegas. Now you can prepare for the future.
I wonder how much Harribance had to do with the generation of this story. And I wonder what the staff members at KSAT have been drinking lately.
