1. Georgetown and College Station are active.

The pilot that crashed into the IRS building in Austin took flight from there.

American Eagle provides service at Easterwood Field in College Station from/to DFW. Three flights incoming and two flights outgoing.

4. Looking over the list, the majority of these airports are in "red" areas.

Beaumont and Brownsville are both Democratic areas.

With the exceptions of the airports in Grand Prairie, Dallas, Houston and San Antonio the rest are in red counties in the 2012 election. I think that Grand Prairie and Arlington are coupled together since their is already air traffic control nearby from other towers.

Isn't it also fitting that the "executive" airports in Dallas and Houston are being closed? Make them CEOs suffer until we get a deal!
