Rewarding Failure

On September 11, 2001, 19 hijackers made their way through airport security with weapons, successfully hijacked four aircraft, and ended up killing 3,000 innocent people.

With this in mind, how should we deal with the Secretary of Transportation in office at that particular time? Firing? Forced resignation? Public upbraiding? No, wait -- I've got it! Let's name an airport after him!

I think I had heard about this earlier, but there's nothing quite like checking for a flight at "Norman Y. Mineta San Jose International Airport" to bring the irony home.
