It's a tiny airport with a tiny parking lot filled with taxis who always arrive right before the airplanes land. There are so few airplanes, they know exactly how many planes land by heart. They also seem to have a good idea of how many people are in each plane, which isn't hard because the planes are all tiny.
Inside, the airport is one big room. Sure, there's a bathroom. Sure, there's a few, glass walls around a security area. Sure, there's a separate area with vending machines and a puzzle set out on a table for flyers to put together while they wait. Mostly, it's one room.
In this room is:
- One painting
with an explanation by the painter about how the painting is of 'historical interest'
- One airline (Cape Air)
with a single employee behind the desk
- One rental car agency (Enterprise)
with a single, unusually hot blonde sitting at the desk
- One runway employee
who stands in the hot sun, directs the pilots where to park, digs all the luggage out of the airplanes, and drags them over to the waiting passengers all by herself
- One police officer
who just seems to sit at her kiosk
- And four, count 'em four, TSA agents
But, four TSA agents? The planes that land at Provincetown don't even carry four passengers each!
Perhaps the conservatives aren't wrong about everything. Government can be wasteful.
