17 August 2013: The Air & Water Show ... More or Less

The Air & Water Show as seen from the Morse Ave. L station
Call me an unpatriotic curmudgeon, but i've never been a fan of fighter jets screaming across the sky while i'm just trying to go about my business; thus, i usually dread the week of the Chicago Air & Water Show. I admit, it scares me. So for once i have reason to celebrate government budget cuts; this year there are no Air Force Thunderbirds or Navy Blue Angels. There are apparently skywriters. I'm still not going-- i'd rather spend the weekend in Rogers Park enjoying the Glenwood Ave. Arts Fest--but at least it seems a little friendlier and, well, welcoming.
