Bullied by Critical Mass last Friday, bullied by the Blue Angels this Friday
I think it's good that our country's miliary has such great aircraft and able young men and women to fly them. Regardless of the merits of these machines and the pilots who operate them, there really is something obnoxious about how they roar noisily over the city every year, waking babies from their naps, startling people on the street, rattling windows, and shaking buildings. Not to mention the danger, however slight, of an accident that would at the very least take out a whole city block. There's wisdom in the idea of staging such shows at air bases that are away from population centers.
