WHY NOT TELL PEOPLE WHAT'S HAPPENING?

Dear Source,
From Louisiana, where currently am, I just read the Thursday article on the Cyril E. King Airport closing and had to chuckle to myself — not because it was funny, but because of the way it was handled. I'm saddened at the manner in which business is done in the name of protecting people but it's not really protecting or assisting, but denying information that would put people at ease.
On the Baton Rouge, La., news last night, a reporter was at the airport talking to the director of operations for the facility. He assured passengers that they could come to the airport to check on reservations and do business at the counters, but that no one would be allowed past the security check-point area.
His explanation of the daily security measures that are being taken by the airport was really reassuring. There was never a hint of hostility in his voice to make anyone even think that they did not have a right to go to the airport.
I just wanted to express this because I am yet to understand why local officials are angry and can't get it right as to how to treat others as they would want to be treated. Or maybe I've got it wrong; maybe they do.
