We didn't go to the event but I'm sure it was thoughtful and glad to see Mountain View doing this at the Art and Wine Festival. Do you know if this event, or the Art and Wine festival in general had a "fly over" scheduled by one of those super fast, noisy jets? It came by the first time on Saturday and really frightened us. My heart was pounding as I didn't associate it with the festival and had been hearing all the terrorist warnings. Then it came by again on Sunday around 11, too. We don't live that far away from down town and I've never in 23 years heard a jet so loud and so low.

I'm glad the jet was flying low and loud. Let it be a signal to the next terrorist who tries to attack our people. That sound will be follow by a 500lb JDAM bomb that will set the terrorist and his family back several generations.
