Navy Blue Angels have been buzzing my office all day!
I work and live in Annapolis, and the Blue Angels, the navy stunt pilots, have been warming up for the Naval Academy graduations this week.
These f-ers are LOUD. I am just waiting for these F/A-18s to start dropping ordnance
It is giving me a headache

1. Watch It!
The Blue Angles are professionals in every meaning of the term. I'm just afraid you may have an out-of-town dummy from DC wandering in for a photo-op.

6. I Wasn't Talking About The Blue Angles
It's the dim dummy that might show up and ruin Annapolis.

7. That would really stink
A presidential visit means traffic jams, secret service, cars towed. When Clinton came it was bad enough, and I liked Clinton.

Rumsfeld flew into the Naval Academy once on a chopper.

5. Clinton came to Annapolis once
He wandered down MD avenue, near where I lived at the time and tied up traffic for hours.
We weren't allowed to open our windows

8. Clinton Came To Louisville Once
For a quiet meeting and a public gathering afterwards.

The only inconvenience during that trip was that a local cop assigned to his security detail shoved a Glock in his back pocket and shot himself in a very embarrassing place early in the morning.

God how I miss those days.

9. Yes, they were buzzing my office on a Friday 2 weeks ago.
I work across the street from Dobbins ARB in Marietta, GA and there was an Air Show that Saturday. So they were practicing for a couple of days. They are absolutelyfantastic.

11. I used to work across from Miramar Marine Air Station
Used to be Naval Air Station Miramar, and I loved watching the Blue Angels practice before the Air Show. It was awesome. I miss that now.
