Blue Angels in San Francisco

Is it wise to have the Blue Angels fly over the second most dense urban area in the United States?

Take a look at the newspaper. There are human beings flying these machines. And, they are machines. This can, at random times, add up to errors. Errors over rural Savannah mean that one person is at risk. Errors over San Francisco mean that hundreds or thousands of people are having their lives gambled with.

I admire the display. I am amazed by their skill. I am dismayed by their hubris.
