Never mind the fact that you can get to exactly five places directly by flying out of Stewart International Airport

The last time I was there, I remember being disappointed that I couldn't get a real cup of coffee, which of course, is much more important than the lack of flights. Luckily Super Sue is coming to our rescue by serving up $3 million in federal funding to make improvements to the terminal, according to this release
