Mayor’s personal invitation to Obama can’t hurt

Good for Mayor Carl Brewer for seizing the opportunity of a few minutes alone with President Obama Monday in the Oval Office to tout the community’s priorities and personally invite the president to visit Wichita. The conversation may not prompt Obama to schedule a visit to the largest city in our deep-red state, even if it happens to be the birthplace of his mother. But at least it can’t hurt the cause of getting the president and his administration to stop singling out general aviation and its customers for damaging criticism and proposed tax hikes.
