Every year the @BlueAngels do a West Coast swing. Every year hundreds of thousands of people come to see them.

Dear Editor,
I was extremely upset and offended to look out my window and see this f'ing rad display of jet fuel and adrenaline...
my favorite is the "but how many roads and bridges could we be building instead of this flying circus!?"

Easy answer. Not many. Blue Angels annual operating budget about $35 million. The estimated cost of replacing the Columbia River I-5 bridge about $750 million.
