Dallas ‘Navy Week’ Cancelled, Nobody Notices

I would not have known there was a Navy Week in Dallas until I received an email this morning canceling it. The Navy Office of Community Relations blames sequestration cuts.

What is a Navy Week? Glad you asked. “Navy Weeks are designed to show Americans living throughout the country the investment they have made in their Navy, and its role in preserving security and prosperity.” In other words, they are PR blitzes in certain key Congressional districts to keep the pressure on for more spending on the Navy.

All of which leads me to believe this sequestration thing is working out nicely. Maybe the Navy can use the money saved for more cool gizmos like this. You know, stuff that actually protects us.
