What sort of ads do you see in your city's airport?

An eagle with a missile in its talons!

You can learn a lot about a city by looking at the ads in the airport. The first time I came to San Jose, I was stunned by the sheer amount of Internet nerdery I saw on their signs. Everywhere, someone was trying to sell a firewall, spam filter, intrusion detection device, or a combination of the three.

Compare that to ... this.

At the airport in Huntsville, AL (HSV), you will find ads for weapons and other defense contractors. This one caught my eye.

Maybe it's because it has a GIANT EAGLE holding a MISSILE in its talons...

Nah. It must be something else.
