Your commentary begins well, but then you drop "Aerotropolis" into the mix, and suddenly your piece no longer seems important. It now looks like another special-interest piece.

Sorry, but even the Spec is using the term 'aerotropolis' these days. AEGD proponents started it, then tried to take it back when it appeared to have negative connotations, but I'm afraid it's too late. It's simple shorthand for the mouthful 'Airport Employment Growth District', and the acronym AEGD is too esoteric to be useful for public discussion. It is no longer just the purview of groups who are opposed, but has entered the mainstream. It's a pretty neutral descriptor when you think about it. You'll likely be hearing it alot more as the public discussion heats up, so I suggest you get used to it and stop trying to marginalize the people who use it.
