I thanked every member of our armed services that went to Seattle's Seafair last weekend. Fleet week was recent, too, and I bought some sailors some beer at a bar. I hope they had fun seeing my flabby rear try to beat one of their SEALs in situps, pushups, pullups, and chin-ups. Those guys are FIT.

I hope they had fun watching the Blue Angels too, even though they're Navy.
