    You are entitled to your opinions. Feel free to suggest a suitable replacement for John Wayne then.

    He’s a famous actor who actually lived in Orange County. Had a nice house on the water in Newport Beach not far from the airport.

    The airport was renamed simply to memorialize a famous local resident.

    I grew up in Orange County.
    The Newport Beach area is wealthy and traditionally conservative, but just slightly right-of-center.

    There really wasn’t anything super-patriotic about any of it.

    The airport call letters are SNA - Santa Ana - which is both the “capital” of Orange County and the armpit of it...I was raised in Santa Ana.

    He also docked his boat at Newport Beach. He was a very avid boater.

    My half brother lives and works in Santa Ana.

    Wayne did tirelessly speak out in defense of America when almost the entirety of Hollywood attacked America during the 60's and onward.

    I think we may be overlooking something, John Wayne was also a person, as well as an actor. I'm pretty sure he wasn't perfect, and quite sure he made mistakes just like any other person. But I have no doubt about the fact he was a patriotic American, who loved this country.

    Which one of us here has never made a mistake, and tried to make up for that mistake?

    Be careful about throwing stones when you live in a glass house.

    Name it after another famous Orange County resident, Dennis Rodman. More representative of the new Orange County

    Soldiers get paid too. Just because you get compensation for doing good work, doesnt negate that is was good work for a good cause.

    BobK; All,

    I have one simple question: WHEN are we patriots going to bring this "renaming" FOOLISHNESS to a SCREECHING HALT & to tell the lunatic leftists to "go pound sand"??

    Imo, IF we Americans still value our LIBERTY, that day of reckoning will have to be SOON.

    yours, satx
