Fleet Week Wastes Taxpayer Dollars--Again
Here's a letter to the editor by my wife. I whole-heartedly agree, of course. People are dying--here and abroad--because of American military excess. Let's stop this nonsense.
Editor, San Francisco Chronicle:
It's Fleet Week again in San Francisco, a disruptive annual celebration of militarism that reminds us why so much of the world's population is so disgusted by the U.S. It's loud, obnoxious, and impossible to ignore. At a time when many in this country and in this city lack adequate education, housing, healthcare, or employment opportunities, is this military orgy the best use of our tax dollars?
