Total Bummer

This is a lot of fun, and it brings a lot of money into NYC, even if it does take it from the defense budget. I know that sailors look forward to it, as well as vendors. I have the feeling they canceled it just to be mean!

Having handsome sailor boys and sailor girls strolling the city eating ice cream and giggling is... well, it is nice. That is what it is. I am disappointed.

Also, check out the photos. I can take or leave Katey Perry, but some of the ship shots are really good.

I'm not surprised, I'd be disappointed too! Perhaps you could cheer yourself up by writing shore leave fic? ;)

Budget thing, I am sure. It must cost a lot to put that on. Sorry. I bet our fleet week will be cancelled.

The sequestration is ruining so much. My mother was attempting to fly home on Monday. She made it back late on Wednesday. (The air traffic controllers are cut way back because of it.)
