It discomfits me to agree with former Maryland Gov. Parris N. Glendening, but he correctly argues that Metro’s rail station at Washington Dulles International Airport should be located at the terminal and not someplace else (“Build Dulles rail station right,” Commentary, Thursday).

An extra $300 million is a lot of money, but the station will be at the terminal for a very long time. Drivers on the Dulles Toll Road need not bear the entire burden; airport passengers could help through something like a departure tax.

Former Virginia Gov. Tim Kaine and Fairfax County’s elected officials (erstwhile Board Chairman Gerald E. Connolly and his acolytes) recently imposed on us an elevated monstrosity through the Tysons Corner “downtown.” Let’s not make a similar mistake at Dulles.
