Politics at the airport?

A while back I wrote a column for USATODAY.com about airports that use celebrity voices to welcome visitors and remind them of security regulations.

Now it seems that Colorado’s Aspen/Pitkin County Airport is considering pulling one of its celebrity announcements – at least until the presidential campaign is over.

According to the Associated Press, someone complained that the airport’s recorded messages made by GOP presidential candidate John McCain “may give him an unfair boost” in the campaign.

Check out the AP report and the original column.
