I'm guessing the crowd was small enough to fit in a Cessna, not a 777, tee


Why should 5 percent of Santa Monica's land to restricted to .00001 percent

of the population to use ??

Why should it go to developers, who will just take the money and run?

The resulting buildings, residential or commercial, will generate jobs and revenues far greater than what current SMO users provide. Just look at the development further south at Playa Vista and the old Hughes site.

When the Big One hits, you will probably be one of the first ones out

there crying for aid, which will come in via SMO, since all the freeways

The "aid" could just as easily use LAX, whatever "aid" is considered so critical that it must be flown in. Most supplies will come overland from Inland Empire warehouses.
