Re: [Czechlist] Vaclav Havel Prague International Airport (?)
- I'm sure a theatre will be named after Havel regardless - that's the
sort of decision that an individual theatre makes, ditto chairs at
departments. I don't see naming an airport after a person as a cult of
personality, given that it's such a common practice.
(I also quite like the idea of naming an airport after someone who
didn't like flying. After all, most people who pass through airports
probably don't really like flying).
