Sorry, Footie, but I love them. Not because I'm some flag-waving patriot, but well... that's some impressive flying. And it's a summer thing. And... I just like them, that's all. I think they're fun to watch (especially if you can manage to be on a boat on Lake Washington.)

If I see them in the sky, I will probably think, "Oh, cool," and then forget about it almost immediately. So I guess I'm on the slightly positive side of not caring.

I'm not from Seattle, so I may have just completely skewed your polling data, but I hate them.

They will be here in October and I'm already dreading it!

Also not from Seattle, but they're nostalgia-on-a-stick for yours truly. Miramar Air Base always figured heavily into kid stuff when I was growing up.

Go Navy! I'm not really a flag waving patriot either but hey I might as well support my branch of service.

I watched them from my deck yesterday. It was kinda fun. But I don't feel strongly about them. This is the first time I've ever seen them or heard of them, though, so a couple years from now I might feel differently.

I'm not saying it's the best utilization of tax dollars or anything. But if it weren't for those commercials making us all look like badasses and Hornet's showing off our air power and such how else would we trick poor schmucks into joining the ranks?

It's all part of the budget for recruiting. I think they could cut back significantly though since they are trying so hard to kick people out of the Navy right now. A lot of people are getting their careers cut short because they are downsizing.

I saw them when I was a kid and I think they're awesome. Regardless of what else you think about them and the politics and sociology and stuff, they're very skilled pilots and while they could be off blowing stuff up, they've chosen (or been chosen) to demonstrate incredible flying skills instead.

Or in other words, don't hate the player, hate the game.

Is the bus service funded by federal tax dollars? If not, then you'd never see that money anyway. (If so, then yeah, that's pretty annoying. But hey, if nobody has jobs, then nobody has to commute and the busses aren't needed, right? Glass half FULL, dammit!)
