Letter to the Editor…

Editor,

 

This year once again, Fleet Week is an abhorrent waste of our taxpayers’ monies.

 

It is an onslaught on the City of St. Francis.

 

The jets’ fuels dump a lot of pollution and carcinogens.  They are detrimental to our health.

 

The jets pose a risk of crashing, and such occurrence in San Francisco would result in massive casualties.  This year, the jets flew even lower than before.

 

Fleet Week jets are machines of death and destruction.  

 

We didn’t have to go to Iraq to search for the “weapons of mass destruction.”  The WMD screamed right over our heads in San Francisco.

 

Let’s spend our tax monies to improve our societal and human well being and health, rather than on Fleet Week.

 

Where do the citizens of San Francisco, the Members of the San Francisco Board of Supervisors, Mayor Ed Lee, Senators Barbara Boxer and Diane Feinstein, Rep. Nancy Pelosi, and our state legislators stand regarding having Fleet Week in the City of St. Francis?
