  Think we are angry now?
Are you having problems sleeping because of airport noise? Just wait and see what happens to Greater Wilmington and the surrounding Philadelphia counties when Philadelphia International Airport (PHL) adds another 200,000 flights by 2011. The ultimate plan is a (USAIR / Southwest) dual fortress hub capable of 800,000 plus operations at PHL by 2015. In fact, a recent emissions inventory compiled by PHL shows that about 10 percent of all regional air pollution originates at the facility. Jet engines, ground support equipment, parking lot traffic and construction are the primary sources. Will someone please tell us how adding massive capacity at PHL will reduce the emissions and noise? Would now be a good time to mention about the A380 coming to PHL?

Why is Wilmington so angry?
The News Journal, DE - Aug 17, 2006
Magazine ranks Delaware's largest city sixth angriest in U.S.

The Men's Health article offered male Wilmingtonians a few pointers to keep their city off next year's list. One suggestion is to take a multi-vitamin.
Also recommended was a good night's sleep. That's hard for angry men, the magazine said, citing a study conducted last year in Korea. Also, sleep-deprived people are generally madder the next day, according to National Sleep Foundation research.
