We're not afraid to admit it -- loud jets have always scared the crap out of us, and 9/11 certainly didn't help that fear.

The Blue Angels are undoubtedly amazing. We have even enjoyed their performances more than once--when seated, in a proper venue, at an air show. We just take exception to their rather obstrusive Fleet Week marketing scheme, wherein they buzz office buildings, spread noise pollution, and create general looky-loo-style havok.

Not that it'll shield us from them entirely, but we're thinking about taking Thursday off from work, as to cower under the bed in our basement unit rather than under our work desk on the 15th floor, oh so close to the sky.
