Remember the sequester?

It seems people are upset that the Blue Angels won't be performing at the Bay Area's Fleet Week as a result of the federal budget sequestration.

I guess it's good that the media has remembered sequestration — from all the recent coverage you'd never know it's in effect — but ... really? This is what warrants coverage?

And for that matter, of all the substantive programs that have been cut back, of all the painful reductions that have been made, this is what upsets people about sequestration — the freaking Blue Angels not showing up?

Really?
