U. S. Navy Blue Angels

U. S. Navy Blue Angels

The U. S. Navy Blue Angels cancel their 2013 airshow schedule.
The announcement came from many news sources this morning followed by stories of the economic damage to communities and small businesses.
Locally, the San Francisco media outlets focused on the bad news that the popular San Francisco Fleet Week will not have the Blue Angels appear.
The Blue Angels are a significant draw to the Fleet Week activities which means far fewer people will attend. The economic impact could total tens of millions of dollars to the local economy and spell serious trouble for vendors that produce a majority of their income at Fleet Week. Situations like this produce the "Domino Effect" that triggers loss of jobs, failure of small businesses, and major losses to local charities that operate or receive funds from Fleet Week activities.
Another sad day in American history.
