No more Blues......At least for 2013.
http://www.cnn.com/2013/04/09/us/militar...hpt=hp_bn1

It became official. The Blue Angels will not fly any more air shows for 2013. The USAF Thunderbirds followed suit as well.

Too bad too. Those teams are so iconic and so popular. I understand the reasons to do so in this cash strapped economy, but they will be missed.

Hopefully they can return in 2014.

Think you're thinking of a different Thunderbirds.

RE: No more Blues......At least for 2013.
I used to work in downtown San Francisco and every year during fleet week they would buzz the town practicing for their stupid show on the weekend. I found it annoying and distasteful. I kept hoping one of them would screw up, fly into a building killing a bunch of people (not me), and the whole ridiculous thing would go away. Sad it required financial reasons to end the stupidity.

Went down to the crossroads, fell down on my knees ...



As it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
And I will show you something different from either
Your shadow at morning striding behind you
Or your shadow at evening rising to meet you;
I will show you fear in a handful of dust.

OK others started this up so I offer.

Sorry I cannot be more elegant. I am too old to learn how to paste in videos. Note the Chuck Berry rip off in the intro.

If you need to know highway 61 is the same highway 61 that at its intersection with highway 49 is where Robert Johnson allegedly sold his soul. The same town where Bessie Smith died after an accident on highway 61 and the same town where Sam Cooke was born. Clarksdale MS.
