You've probably heard of Senator Howard Metzenbaum of Ohio, though he left the Senate twelve years ago. What I didn't know until I read that he'd died last night was that he'd effectively invented the concept of the well-lit, 24-hour, commercial airport parking lot. The business he started at the Cleveland airport eventually became APCOA, the world's largest parking lot company. And the business he started with a partner, one of the first car rental agencies, is now Avis.
