Team Room, here’s a note we just got from a reader. It’s fairly typical in that our readers really let their feelings be known – they tell us everything. This one is from Mark, in NYC.

I am a simple NYC Citizen who is patriotic and loves this country. The news the past week of all the scandals has taken over and I believe that the following has been overlooked. I am not blaming one side or the other. I am blaming the whole system for the recent irresponsibility.

As Memorial Day approaches I have a huge issue. In NYC every year we have Fleet week. This is an opportunity for both the Sailors/Marines/Service men and women to come to NYC as a port of call to enjoy the best of what NYC has to offer. It is also a great opportunity for the civilian population of NYC to show support, Thank, and take pride in our Navy and Marine Corp. This year, due to the idiot bureaucrats and the irresponsibility of the government NYC FLEET WEEK 2013 has been cancelled (SEQUESTER). The brave men and women who serve this great nation are missing out on an experience and civilians are missing out on the opportunity to thank the people who give for this country.
